i developed a chatting application..

i want to know three things in the Frame Resizing.

1. i tried to restrict the user cann't resize the frame less than (300,600) by setPreferedSize(). it works. but the user can resize upto 0,0 .. when the user leave the mouse button for resize, then it comes to the preferedsize. i want to restrict the user cannot resize less than 300,600. How to do..?

2. when the user minimize or maximize the frame size, after leave the mouse button for minisize/maximize, it draws the frame based for frame size.. i need to draw same time when i resize the frame. how to do?

3. when the frame is in resized size, i want to show to the dots (like triangle)in the right-bottom corner of the status bar to indicate the user can maximize or resize the frame. how to do..?

if any one come to know this, pls tell me..

Sounds like you need to add your own ComponentListener, adding the functionality you want to the componentResized method.
