[Mono-winforms-list] Maximized don't works completely

Since this is usually done in Windows by calling out to unmanaged code, I
don't know if there is a cross-platrform method that works. On Linux, it's
going to depend on what desktop you are using.
You could try explicitly setting the window size to the size of the screen
rather than maximizing it but YMMV.

Hi Stefano,
In Windows, Maximized is not the same as full screen. However, it can
sometimes appear the
same, if you have set the task bar to disappear when a form is maximized.
In other words, I think you are seeing differences in both platform and user

Hi,i'm trying to create a Kiosk application, but when i try to set a winform
in this way
            this.FormBorderStyle = FormBorderStyle.None;
            this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized;
            this.TopMost = true;

It doesn't fit all screen.
Infact the task bar and application bar at the top and bottom of the desktop
are still showed.
In windows all works fine.
Could you help me ??
Thanks in advance
