hi Resma
I suppose you could write a WindowAdapter class overwriting windowIconfied with any necessary detail.

Out of curiosity, why should the window get minimized automatically? I have not seen any applications that do that. The only apps, I see doing that are the ones in the windows hot or active bar on the very edge like msn messenger etc.

Never be satisfied with anything less than the best and you will surely pass the test...

When i start my The gui pops up. when client presses the start button, the server starts. so i have the dos prompt, then on top of it the gui. i want to minimise the gui screen so that only dos prompt stays.
what do u guys think abt it?
