    fl_iconify() will send a request to your window manager to iconify the
    Window containing the form. fl_winshow() may redisplay it. You may
    have to issue an fl_redraw_form() to cause the form to redraw itself
    after deiconification since an Expose event may or may not get sent.

    I am somewhat indefinite in my answer because iconification of Windows
    is under the control of your window manager and not all window
    managers respond to a WM_CHANGE_STATE property in the same way. You
    may wish to use fl_hide_form() and fl_show_form() to do this instead
    since they produce more reliable results.
