Specifies how a form window is displayed.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public enum FormWindowState

Member nameDescription
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkNormalA default sized window.
MinimizedA minimized window.
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkMaximizedA maximized window.

This enumeration is used by the Form class. It represents the different states of the form. The default state is Normal.

In this example, you change the form's window state to Maximized and display the state information using a label. This example assumes that you have already created a Form named Form1.

public void InitMyForm()
{
	// Adds a label to the form.
	Label label1 = new Label();
	label1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(54, 128);
	label1.Name = "label1";
	label1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(220, 80);
	label1.Text = "Start position information";
	this.Controls.Add(label1);

	// Changes the window state to Maximized.
	WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized;
	// Displays the state information.
	label1.Text = "The form window is " + WindowState;	
}
