Minimize Form and Keep It Minimized

I can minimize a form to taskbar by:

Me.WindowState = vbMinimized

However, I want it to stay minimized. Currently, if the user clicks on the taskbar entry, it redisplays that form. I have the ControlBox disabled as well as MinButton and MaxButton disabled.

I want it to stay visible on the taskbar so that it can display the status of the program (using the form caption).

Hi,

Use

Me.WindowState = vbMinimized
Me.Enabled = False

And don't forget to set it back to True when software supposed to be restored :)

Sincerely,
Crin

Try placing the window out of view.

In Form_Load:

Windowstate = vbMinimized
Left = -(Width *2)

Hope it helps!
