How can I don't let a user of my java application resize a frame. For example I initially resize it to 300x200. But I don't want to let the user to use the maximize button for the frame to resize it.

IMPORTANT: PLEASE ANSWER:
(1)How can I detect when the user click on the maximize button?

if ( event happened on button)
 {
   resize(X, Y);
 // or in JDK 1.1
   setSize(X,Y);
//where are X and Y variables to hold preferred size to resize

public boolean handleEvent(Event event) {


  if (event.id == Event.WINDOW_MAXIMIZE)
{
 .....
 stuff here to react
 ......
}

This should work. THere is only one problem. If user maximizes frame then there is no such event like WINDOW_MAXIMIZE
I have checked what generates event, when I maximize frame, but there is no such special event. Probably calls resize.
:(
