Good Day All - I have got a parent-child form setup.The parent form is positioned above the child form by calling a macro with a "MoveSize" in the on load event of this form. When viewing the form it is positioned correctly at the top left as per the "MoveSize" position.
If I click anywhere within the white space of this form (i.e. not on a control) it immediately jumps to the center of the screen and has additional white space on the right and bottom of the form, making it much larger than as per the "MoveSize" sizing.

Properties that may matter are:
click event = empty
popup = Yes
Modal = No
auto center = No
auto resize = No
fit to screen = No

What can be the reason for this behavior?

on MoveSize function, did you specify just the Right and Down parameters?

sorry, can't tell.
but i've tested with a form with only Detail section on it, it does not resize
and repositioned when clicked.

Found it! I have been looking at the form's click event which has nothing in it, but the detail section had a click event which had movesize code in it, taking the form to a position which I must have entered during the initial stages of fiddling with it whilst trying to position it correctly.
Nevertheless, thanks for trying to assist and apologies for me being such a bird brain
