Minimized icon's caption <> Form's caption = Why?

Delphi 1 question...

In a new project go to "Options | Project | Application" and enter "Testing
123" in the application's "Title" field.  Then when the project is run,
change the main form's caption to read "Form1.Caption := 'My form';   Then
minimize the application from Windows 95.  Look at the Task Bar and you
will NOT see "My form" as the minimized icon's caption, but rather you will
see the Application's Title!

Most applications (non Delphi) that I have seen display the form's caption
as the icon's caption when the form is iconized/minimized.  How does one
accomplish the same behavior with Delphi 1?

The following does what you want:(for more help look TApplication.OnMinimize and Onrestore events)

unit Unit1;
interface
uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms, Dialogs, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    procedure FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    SaveTitle : string;
    procedure Minimizing(Sender: TObject);
    procedure Restoring(Sender: TObject);
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation
{$R *.DFM}

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Application.OnMinimize := Minimizing;
  Application.OnRestore  := Restoring;
end;

procedure TForm1.Minimizing(Sender: TObject);
begin
  SaveTitle := Application.Title;
  Application.Title := Form1.Caption;
end;

procedure TForm1.Restoring(Sender: TObject);
begin
  Application.Title := SaveTitle;
end;

end.

Sincerely,
Igor
