How to set the Maximum size of Application Window when Loaded?

I am doing a Project I need to see the Application window with Full Screen size GUI. I have tried with method like setExtendedState(), SetMaximumSize(). setMinimumSize() and setMaximizedBounds(). I am using NetBeans as GUI Builder. I am not getting the requirement when the Form is executed. How can I fix this?

Thanks and Regards

java.awt.GraphicsDevice has a method to set the (single) fullscreen window. You can get a reference to a GraphicsDevice object through java.awt.GraphicsEnvironment (either getDefaultScreenDevice or getScreenDevices), which has a static method to get a reference.

Well, it depends on what you mean by Full Screen size GUI. If you mean Full Screen Mode as in no title bars, no OS access, etc, Rob is on the right track. Take a look at this.

If you just want the Frame maximized setExtendedState is the way to go but you must call it after the UI is realized. So after setVisible(true).
