Window.RestoreBounds Property

Gets the size and location of a window before being either minimized or maximized.

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

member RestoreBounds : Rect with get

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Rect
A Rect that specifies the size and location of a window before being either minimized or maximized.

The restore rectangle is the region occupied by the window before it was minimized or maximized. You can use RestoreBounds to save the last size and location of a window before an application is closed, and retrieve those values the next time an application starts to restore a window to the way a user left it.

If you query RestoreBounds before the window has been shown or after it has been closed, Empty is returned.

NoteNote

You cannot get this property when a window is hosted in a browser.

The following example uses RestoreBounds and isolated storage to ensure the size and location of a window are the same as they were the previous time the window was shown.

<Window x:Class="WindowRestoreBoundsSnippets.MainWindow"
