What handle do you have? The process handle? Then you're out of luck. If you have the handle of the main window, you can use DragonSlayer's solution.

the handle which I meant is windows handle, I have used this :
 ShowWindow(Handle,SW_MAXIMIZE) or
 ShowWindow(Handle,SW_MINIMIZE)
 then
 ShowWindow(Handle,SW_SHOW)
 then
 ShowWindow(Handle,SW_NORMAL)
but It make un-comfort on eyes :(
 
So ... , anyone know how to use the "ShowWindow" Windows API function or other function?


Thanks to All

Shiro

Look at DragonSlayer's comment, you have to use SW_RESTORE, that should work fine.

Yevgen, you can't. You would have to recreate the window in the context of the other application. That's *quite* difficult...
