i placed a small picture in my main menu form, and then had a code so that it looks tiled when i run it. My problem is that, i cant do the same thing in the MDI form., the picture box expands at the top.
any help?.. thanks..

A MDI form is not a normal Form, it is only used to host children Forms,
So you can't put any of the standard controls on a MDI Form. The only
exception, is the Picturebox, but the only reason it is allowed, is to
serve as a toolbar, where you display buttons. That is why it expands
at the top, it's default position.
There may be away of modifying you code to update the MDI, from a
Picture object (in memory), rather than a picturebox. Or you may be
able to have the picturebox hosted on a separate form, but at this time,
I don't know, and I should have been in bed hours ago, so I don't have
time to try and figure how to go about it.
