MINIMIZEDMETRICS structure

Contains the scalable metrics associated with minimized windows. This structure is used with the SystemParametersInfo function when the SPI_GETMINIMIZEDMETRICS or SPI_SETMINIMIZEDMETRICS action value is specified.

Syntax

typedef struct tagMINIMIZEDMETRICS {
  UINT cbSize;
  int  iWidth;
  int  iHorzGap;
  int  iVertGap;
  int  iArrange;
} MINIMIZEDMETRICS, *PMINIMIZEDMETRICS, *LPMINIMIZEDMETRICS;

iVertGap

The vertical space between arranged minimized windows, in pixels.

iArrange

The starting position and direction used when arranging minimized windows. The starting position must be one of the following values.
