hey usually when we run the gui frame has the size that we specified when we maximize it, it grows up to full size of screen. here wht i want is when we run the the programme the frame should be the size of the screen(ofcourse differenct monitors have different screen size) and then i should be able to minimize for a certain length. how can i do that.
thank u
