how to make a form static?
I don't want a form to be resized or moved, I was trying to catch the 'SIZE' event but not working well, is any other way I can make a form static?
This can prevent resizing but not moving
Cant move = Untick 'Title'
how Title and Frame-Thin relate to a form being static?

so can I catch a 'move ' event and halt it?

I started looking at this problem again, and it's actually quite simple to achieve what slowjams is asking.
I spent ages trying to figure this out in 2018, and now I found out how to do it in 2020 in a few hours.
Style = Get_Property(
Style[1,2] = ""
Style = IConv(Style, "MX")
* remove the specified style
Style = bitand(Style, bitnot(0x00800000))
, "STYLE", Style)
The form is an mdi-child, but it has no border, and hence can't be moved.
