Well, you can try to use some icon holding list and when an icon is clicked in it you show the forms. It's not hard, I think.

Good luck!

Yo,

here is a code snippet that should fit your needs :

procedure TMDIParentForm.MinimizeChildWindows;
var Index : Integer;
begin
  for Index := 0 to MDIChildCount - 1 do
   begin
     // suppose a MinimizeOK function that returns true if
     // the form should be minimized
     if MinimizeOK(MDIChildren[Index])
      then MDIChildren[Index].WindowState := wsMinimized;
   end;
end;

Right, Matvey. In Win3.x a minimized window was displayed as an icon. Thats why I associate iconized and minimized. Hence, in Win95, a minimized window is not an icon anymore.
If you want to have a look like program manager, take an image list with icons and a list view in vsIcon view style.
