Maximizing the form

Hello!

I am quite aware that this might be a pretty stupid question, but anyway. What I am trying to achieve is that my program performs some kind of action when the user maximizes the main form. In other words I need the program to act when user presses Maximize button in the top right corner of the form (standard button for any Windows application).

I tried basically two methods:
1) Application.onMaximize event but this one seems to have other purposes. This event is actually not triggered when form is maximized (or I did something wrong).

2) Main form's WinState property. However, this one works kinda strange. I expected it to become wsMaximized when user maximizes the window, but somehow it stays wsNormal, so the program does not do what I want it to.

Any help will be highly appreciated.

    You can use the TForm.OnResize() for this, although it will report the previous WindowState. To get arround this, you need to call UpdateWindowState(), before checking the WindowState.

    Thanks! I actually did just that but without calling UpdateWindowState(), and thus faced some problems.
