detected minimize or maximize event on window (Solved)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I need to determine when a window is being maximized or minimized

I have looked at the window event options, but besides GETMINMAXINFO I do not see any event to tell me explicity a maximize or minimize is happening

GETMINMAXINFO fires on both minimize and maximize so it does not help.

What I am trying to do with this message is resize a child window (which is another head scratcher).

Help appreciated.

Thanks, but I am not using Opt("GUIOnEventMode,1) so that would not work

All I want to do is resize a child window correctly when its parent is maximized (It start off minimized).  Is there an easy way to do this?


Sorry, my mistake , of course I can do what you suggested

While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg(1)
    Switch $nMsg[0]
        case $GUI_EVENT_MAXIMIZE

I live, I learn.
