How to catch when window manger iconify my SDL window and restore it from
iconified state?

You can use the SDL_ACTIVEEVENT event :

“When the mouse leaves or enters the window area a SDL_APPMOUSEFOCUS type
activation event occurs, if the mouse entered the window then gain will be 1,
otherwise gain will be 0. A SDL_APPINPUTFOCUS type activation event occurs
when the application loses or gains keyboard focus. This usually occurs when
another application is made active. Finally, a SDL_APPACTIVE type event
occurs when the application is either minimised/iconified (gain=0) or
restored.”

Thank you. That is exactly that I was looking for.
How can I miss such obvious event is a mistery :slight_smile:
