Occurs when the active explorer is minimized by the user.

expression .BeforeMinimize(Cancel)

expression A variable that represents an Explorer object.

Parameters

Name

Required/Optional

Data Type

Description

Cancel

Required

Boolean

False when the event occurs. If the event procedure sets this argument to True, the operation is not completed and the explorer is not minimized.

This event can be cancelled after it has started.

The following Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example prompts the user with a message before the window is minimized. If the user clicks Yes, the explorer is minimized. The sample code must be placed in a class module such as ThisOutlookSession, and the Initialize_Handler() subroutine should be called before the event procedure can be called by Microsoft Outlook.

Public WithEvents myOlExp As Outlook.Explorer 
 
 
 
Sub Initalize_Handler() 
 
 Set myOlExp = Application.ActiveExplorer 
 
End Sub 
 
 
 
Private Sub myOlExp_BeforeMinimize(Cancel As Boolean) 
 
'Prompts the user before minimizing the Explorer 
 
 
 
 Dim lngAns As Long 
 
 
 
 lngAns = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to minimize the current window?", vbYesNo) 
 
 If lngAns = vbYes Then 
 
 Cancel = False 
 
 Else 
 
 Cancel = True 
 
 End If 
 
End Sub
