disable/hide minimize button of onscreen keyboard

Posted 26 November 2012 - 11:44 AM

i am working a kiosk application with vb.net and i use the osk. the problem is when i minimize it, it hides after the form which is maximized and it doesnt show again until restarting the application. is there a way to hide the minimize button or to disable it, or to manipulate the code , i mean to implement something like
" sub minimize_button_click(...) handles ....
do nothing
end sub"

i tried to precede each open statement with close keyboard statement, so even if the keyboard is hidden, close it then open it, but for some reasons i dont know it didnt work

thanks for the help

This doesn't seem to be a "Site Questions & Support" question. Moving to VB.NET

Do it as a borderless form.

You posted this in this forum's "Site Questions & Support" area... this isn't asking for support for dream in code, but instead you are asking for help on some project of yours. There's a difference in intent. I then moved the post for you. Next time be mindful of where you are posting.

Thing wants to know if your form has a border or not? seems pretty straight forward question.

I'm not even asking: I'm suggesting - Do it as a borderless form. That way you have no border, no minimize widget, no close widget, etc. Pretty standard for a kiosk. Have you ever used a kiosk where you could see the windows form border?

Select your form in designer.
Look at the properties pallet.
Find the border style. Set it to none or borderless, however it is worded.
