PrintPreviewDialog.MinimizeBox Property


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the minimize button is displayed in the caption bar of the form.

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

public bool MinimizeBox { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true to display a minimize button for the form; otherwise, false. The default is true.

This property is not relevant for this class.

A minimize button enables users to minimize a window to an icon. To display a minimize button, you must also set the form's FormBorderStyle property to either FormBorderStyle.FixedSingle, FormBorderStyle.Sizable, FormBorderStyle.Fixed3D, or FormBorderStyle.FixedDialog.


Minimizing a form at run time generates a Resize event. The WindowState property reflects the current state of the window. If you set the WindowState property to FormWindowState.Minimized, the form is minimized independently of whatever settings are in effect for the MinimizeBox and FormBorderStyle properties.
