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.
