How do I maximize a form that is minimized (through code)

Friends,

I have a form that is running in the background (minimized), and it is listening to a TCP Stream (and consequently parsing the strings coming out of the stream).  Now, when a valid string is found, and matches the criteria below, I want to maximize the screen.  What is the syntax for maximizing a form?

Thanks in advance!

Btw, here is the code where, if the condition is met, the form would need to be maximized.

Case "F"
                If PresentFlagState = Nothing Then
                    PresentFlagState = AMBParser_Flag.GetValue(AMBMLPValidString, 4)
                Else
                    Dim TestForNewFlagState As String = Nothing
                    TestForNewFlagState = AMBParser_Flag.GetValue(AMBMLPValidString, 4)
                    If PresentFlagState = TestForNewFlagState Then
                        NewFlagStateFound = False
                    Else
                        NewFlagStateFound = True
                        PresentFlagState = TestForNewFlagState
                    End If
                End If

                If NewFlagStateFound = True Then
                    'Get Flag Detail
                    Select Case PresentFlagState
                        Case PresentFlagState = "Green"
                            AVAOMain.??? '<-This is where the form would need to be maximized.


Regards,
Eric
