Hello all

Let's open this topic again.

Maximized center screen Form1 after being minimized


Idle Mind was right on this:
"It's only when i minimize it with the code, then when i maximize it, it goes in top corner."

The instance of Form1 that you minimized is NOT the same instance that you are dealing with in QuitterToolStripMenuItem_Click().

Do you want the original instance to un-minimize when Form2 is closed?


Yes, i would like to unminimized the original form.

How can i do this?

Me.Close()
        Dim f As New Form1
        f.Left = (Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Width \ 2) - (f.Width \ 2)
        f.Top = (Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Height \ 2) - (f.Height \ 2)

        f.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterScreen
        f.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal
        f.Show()

Open in new window


Thanks again.

You didn't follow the code closely enough then.

In your QuitterToolStripMenuItem() menu handler, remove the code that creates another instance of Form1.  It should only have "Me.Close()" i n there:
Private Sub QuitterToolStripMenuItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles QuitterToolStripMenuItem.Click
        Me.Close()

        ' Remove the lines below!
        ' Dim f As New Form1
        ' f.Left = (Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Width \ 2) - (f.Width \ 2)
        ' f.Top = (Screen.PrimaryScreen.Bounds.Height \ 2) - (f.Height \ 2)
        '
        ' f.StartPosition = FormStartPosition.CenterScreen
        ' f.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal
        ' f.Show()
    End Sub

Open in new window

Oh, you are right.

Now it's working great.

But i have change this.
Private Sub Form2_FormClosed(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosedEventArgs) Handles Me.FormClosed
        Me.WindowState = FormWindowState.Normal
    End Sub

Thanks again
