Minimize Form window with PushButton

Minimize Form window with PushButton

Hi Everybody!

I have a problem (maybe stupid but I don't know how to solve it!): is it possible to minimize a form window with a push button? I mean, if I have a form window without a system menu (and so I can't use the minimize button) how can I implement another minimize button with a simple pushbutton? Maybe it's a little crazy but I have to do it with a Push Button...


RE: Minimize Form window with PushButton

Under your pushbutton try:

On SAM_Click
   Call VisWinShow (hWndForm, SHOW_Minimized )

Of course you will need to declare :
Number: SHOW_Minimized       = 2

AND include the appropriate dll to run the VT functions.
eg if you are running CTD2000, you need to include vti20.dll found in vtwin.apl, supplied with your CTD installation pack.
Come back if you need more help doing this
