Hello, I want to be able to run some code when the user minimizes the program, i know this can be done because it happens on a lot of programs.  I want to hide the form when this happens because it resedents in the system tray.  So all i need is how to figure out when it is minized.

Thanks...

Idle_Mind,
Why not to accept your code ? It's correct solution also.

Because I just changed one line in your code which I think clear100-com would have known to do.  Your answer had the main part of the solution...my poor brain just couldn't leave the question without posting the complete answer.

You posted first so I felt you should get the points.
