Open Automation server window


IDL Method Signature

HRESULT MaximizeCommandWindow(void)

Microsoft Visual Basic Client





MaximizeCommandWindow(h) displays the window for the server attached to handle h, and makes it the currently active window on the desktop.

MaximizeCommandWindow restores the window to the size it had at the time it was minimized, not to the maximum size on the desktop. If the server window was not previously in a minimized state, MaximizeCommandWindow does nothing.

Visual Basic .NET Examples

From a Visual Basic® .NET client, modify the size of the command window in a MATLAB® Automation server. To run examples in products that execute VBA code, see Tips.

Dim Matlab As Object

Matlab = CreateObject("matlab.application")

'Now return the server window to its former state on 
'the desktop and make it the currently active window.



  • To run examples in Microsoft® Office products that execute VBA code, replace the statement:

    MatLab = CreateObject("matlab.application")


    Set MatLab = CreateObject("matlab.application")

    If you need more information, then refer to your VBA product documentation.
