Disable Restore button on forms

I have read some questions and answers on this subject and would like to know if anyone has any code I could put in the ON RESIZE event of my form so that if the user presses the restore button my form just maximizes again?


Why didn't MS make an option to disable it like the close and min/max buttons.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

The restore button does not fire the On Resize event. Use this instead.

Sub Form_Open()
Docmd.Maximize
Me.TimerInterval = 10
End Sub

Sub Form_Timer
Docmd.Maximize
End Sub

If you want to drive your users nuts change the timer interval to 5000 ;-))

Thanks for that answer, that will work. But there must be a more elegant solution.

Is there a way to get the window state programatically so you only fire docmd.maximize if the form isn't maximized?

Try using the Form_Resize event
