Hi folks,
I am having 2 windows,where the second window is launched by clicking the button on first window.If the second is minimised and if user tries to click the button on first window,
the second which is already opened should get maximised.
Basically how to maximise the window from its minised postion??
can anybody give the method which does??

Since java 1.4 there is a new set of methods to support window state operations.
Under JFrame there is:-
public void setExtendedState(int state)
Sets the state of this frame. The state is represented as a bitwise mask.
Indicates that no state bits are set.
Note that if the state is not supported on a given platform, nothing will happen. The application may determine if a specific state is available via the java.awt.Toolkit#isFrameStateSupported(int state) method.
I agree. Here's the link:
