minimize maximize form

I have 2 form, when I minimize the second form, I see the minimize box in the corner of my desktop (just like each form in delphi). Then I use Application.minimize to really minimise everything but when I maximize, the second form didn't maximize automatically. I use windowstate to change the state of the form in the OnResize to maximize the form but it didn't work.

I also try WM_SYSCOMMAND but it not work.

Any idea how to do that?

I really appreciate if you can provide me a code sample to do the job.

Thanks

It might get stuck if you maximize form inside the onResize event. I mean you maximize =>resize=>OnResize event=>LOOP??

Wild guess...

Good luck!

Hi

Also look at TApplication's OnRestore event, which can be used to restore each child form.

The OnRestore event is the answer to my question.

Thanks JimBob.

Hi sierra20

I will answer the question then, assuming you are using Application.OnRestore := MyRestoreEvent;

Cheers,
