I am having a grid, in which there is a column 'Attachment Link'.
This column contains different links.
When a link is clicked, i have to open the file depending on its filetype.

For example if the fle name is A.txt, when i click the link it should be opened in notepad.

If i have a link B.doc, when i click this it should be opened in MS-Word.

I am using 'ShellExecute' for opening this files.

Now when i click a image link say 'DCS009.JPG', it can be opened in InternetExplorer and it is opening fine.

The problem is we are able to open the file but it is Minimized, actually it should be Maximized.

What shall i do to keep it in Maximised state.

It is very urgent.Waiting for appropriate solution.

This appears to be a general programming issue, not Syncfusion specific.

Have you tried to adjust the nShowCmd parameter of ShellExecute to indicate that the window should not be minimized?
