Property Value

A Rectangle that contains the location and size of the form in the normal window state.

Typically, you use the RestoreBounds property to track the user's window size and position preferences for the form in its normal window state. You should track both the value of the WindowState and RestoreBounds properties when tracking the user's window preferences.


The value of the RestoreBounds property is valid only when the WindowState property of the Form class is not equal to Normal.
