Conditional Show if other object is not minimized


I have a button that I want to only show if a specific chart is not minimized, i.e. when a user restores the chart the button should be visible, and when the chart is minimized the button should not be shown.

Is this possible?

Since sheet objects no longer have OnActivate events, I usually put a transparent text box over the minimized chart object.

When a user clicks the chart (really the transparent text object), actions can be used to restore the chart and set a variable to show the button.

I really like that idea, but how would I then get the button to disappear (not show) again when the chart is minimized?

The chart can be minimized by double-clicking the caption or the minimize icon in the caption, and I can't overlay another transparent object over that because then users won't be able to export to Excel.

Charts can also be auto-minimized when other charts are restored to the same position.

I might be missing something obvious here - any ideas?
