Determine if a window is maximized

Determine if a window is maximized


Given a window handle, I need to determine if the window is maximized. I **think** I want to use the GetWindowPlacment api and look at the flags in the WINDOWPLACEMENT struct. Is this correct? If so, what value do I look for to see if the window is maximized?


RE: Determine if a window is maximized

A combination of GetWindowPos and WM_GETMINMAXINFO should do the trick.  

RE: Determine if a window is maximized

Use the IsZoomed function.

RE: Determine if a window is maximized

Excellent! A new API function for me. Have a star.

Thanks fred93 and strongm.

I'll try the isZoomed. (I never noticed that one either...)
