BeforeMinimize Event

Occurs when the active explorer or inspector is minimized by the user. This event can be cancelled after it has started.

Private Subexpression_BeforeMinimize(Cancel As Boolean)

*expression   * An expression that returns one of the objects in the Applies To list declared with events in a class module.

*Cancel   * Required Boolean. False when the event occurs. If the event procedure sets this argument to True, the operation is not completed and the explorer or inspector is not minimized.


The following Microsoft Visual Basic/Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) example prompts the user with a message before the window is minimized. If the user clicks Yes, the explorer is minimized. The sample code must be placed in a class module such as ThisOutlookSession, and the Initialize_Handler() subroutine should be called before the event procedure can be called by Microsoft Outlook.

Public WithEvents myOlExp As Outlook.Explorer

Sub Initalize_Handler()
    Set myOlExp = Application.ActiveExplorer
End Sub

Private Sub myOlExp_BeforeMinimize(Cancel As Boolean)
'Prompts the user before minimizing the Explorer

    Dim lngAns As Long

    lngAns = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to minimize the current window?", vbYesNo)
    If lngAns = vbYes Then
        Cancel = False
        Cancel = True
    End If
End Sub
