 Opening windows iconized

Hello all,

I run into an strange problem when opening windows iconized.

It is a resizable window with an icon (so it can be iconified), it is called
via START() from a Menu Frame, and it has set "Open as Iconized".
When the window is opened, no icon is displayed; instead, a quite large area
at the bottom of the screen is painted with the Windows desktop background.
Curiously, that area is considerably wider than the window's icon. Clicking
anywhere on that area will produce the system menu of the window. Restoring
the window will produce the window just as it should, and iconizing the
window again will paint a neat little icon just as one would expect.

Any suggestions on how to persuade the window to display its icon right from
the start?

Sounds like something's happening before it should be. Maybe you're (or
the AppGen's code is) iconizing it before the window is fully opened?
Check your embeds. I would suggest in the embed 'After Opening Window'
you have the code:

I'm not sure where you got the check for 'Open Window Iconized'. Is this
on the procedure properties?
