Hi

  I've kind of got this working at the moment but badly, e.g.

   onActivate = (e: any) =>
   {
         if (this.minimiseOnStartup)
          {
                setTimeout(this.Minimise, 1);
          }
    }

    Minimise = () =>
        {
            var $kendoWindow = $(this.windowId);
            $kendoWindow.data('kendoWindow').minimize();
        }

 

(this is typescript rather than javascript but I'm sure you get the point)

So, in the onActivate call I call the minimize function (this is with the opening animation switched off). This means the windows first appear full size then shrink down. If you call minimize without the slight delay it doesn't work at all.

Question

- Is there a better way of doing this? I couldn't find a configuration option

Failing that I'll have to look into hiding the window until the minimize has finished, but that feels like a hack

 

thanks

Hello Anthony,

The Window is not designed to be initially minimized, but I think the following behavior looks OK in terms of user experience:
