You can try to check the window.outerWidth, window.outerHeight values (in Firefox) of the browser to identify the minimized state.

It cannot be done. Alternately, you can use your own functions to minimize [not exactly] the window and control your probing.

For this, the below code may be helpful.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript">
 
function Minimize()
{
window.innerWidth = 100;
window.innerHeight = 100;
window.screenX = screen.width;
window.screenY = screen.height;
alwaysLowered = true;
}
 
function Maximize()
{
window.innerWidth = screen.width;
window.innerHeight = screen.height;
window.screenX = 0;
window.screenY = 0;
alwaysLowered = false;
}
</SCRIPT>
 
<A HREF="javascript:onClick=Minimize()">Click Here To Minimize</A>
<A HREF="javascript:onClick=Maximize()">Click Here To Maximize</A> 

Open in new window

I afraid that you cannot detect whether the browser is minimized or not.

If you use the above function, you can track the browser minimized status, if the user used the above function to minimize the browser, you can control your probe action by introducing a new variable in the above code.

Hope it is clear.
