Hi, damn this is irritating - please provide relief..LOL.
1 - I want my form to start up in the invisible state. So, in the form_load event, I have Me.Visible = False (this does'nt work in the form_load event) (Please don't suggest Opacity as a solution as this doesn't disable the controls on the form face) I am using a timer and making it invisible there, but there is a small slice of time where the initial load of the form will show the screen.
2 - My form is normally invisible, so when a certain event fires on the form, I need to make the form visible, so I make it visible, Me.Visible = True, this works, but if the form was previously minimized by the user, I cannot restore it to the normal state. The following simply doesn't work - > Me.WIndowState = FormWindowState.Normal doesn't work
How do I force a restore of the form regardless of previous state.
Some sanity greatly appreciated...
