Hi,

How to minimize (keep the form active) even after u have pressed the closed button.
Just like in MSN or Yahoo messenger when ever u press the close button...the form doesnt get unloaded but it remains active in the System tray.

Thanks in advance.

Chintamani.

Write the following in form's query unload event it'll b minimized


Private Sub Form_QueryUnload(Cancel As Integer, UnloadMode As Integer)
Cancel = 1          'Avoids closing of the window
Me.WindowState = 1  'Minimizes the window
End Sub
