Maximize loses its smaller size...

I have an SDI application that saves it's main window's maximize state... When I start up the application, the window is resized to the maximize size and everybody is happily diddly!

The problem is that when I click on the maximize again to restore the size, well obviously it doesn't go back to the size it was when I closed the application. It just shrinks a little bit and sits there... kinda what happened the night the leafs lost last week...

Where can I find the window's restore size and how do I put it back when I show the window?

(The maximize is restored at the end of "InitInstance" of the main application class.)

You should keep last window size in non-maximized state. When window it closed in maximized state, keep in Registry this state and window size before it was maximized. When application starts, set this non-maximized size in PreCreateWindow and show window with SW_SHOWMAXIMIZED parameter. In this case window is able to return to it's normal state.

Hi ,


with CWnd::GetWindowPlacement() you can retrieve a struct WINDOWPLACEMENT ... you can store this or it's members anywhere when the window closes.
After creation of the window you can re-set these stored state with CWnd::SetWindowPlacement()
