paste this code in your OnSysCommand function

if ((nID & 0xFFF0) == SC_MAXIMIZE)

if ((nID & 0xFFF0) == SC_RESTORE)

if ((nID & 0xFFF0) == SC_MINIMIZE)

hope this helps

try this

in function  WindowProc(.......    , write

if(message == WM_SYSCOMMAND && wParam == SC_MINIMIZE)

if(message == WM_SYSCOMMAND && wParam == SC_MAXIMIZE)
if(message == WM_SYSCOMMAND && wParam == SC_RESTORE)

where message is the message identifier.
