I have asked this in the RCP forum but possibly it is not an RCP-only
question....

I have an RCP app. When the user clicks on the _ in the window title bar
to minimize the window, we may need to keep the minimization from
occurring. I can capture the shellIconified event but that occurs after
the minimization has been done and setting ShellEvent.doit to false has
no effect (as far as I can tell). We need to intercept this before the
minimization and in such a way that we can keep the minimization from
occurring.

Alternatively, is there a way to remove/disable the minimize button from
the RCP window? This is not perfect but sometimes one has to compromise.

Thanks,
Mike Higginbotham

You can remove the button by not specifying the SWT.MIN styl when you create
the shell.
