Having a WindowListener subclass, it allows the trapping of de/activate Closed/ing de/iconified opend/closed.... but where do I trap/inhibit the maximize/restore/minimize events?

The restore and minimize events are the deInconified and iconified events,
respectively. I went through the docs and I don't believe there is a listener
for the maximizing event since not all platform have them. Another listener
that may be useful is the componentListener, it has:

componentMoved()
componentResized()
componentHidden()
componentShown()

In short, use iconfied events to trap the minimizing event and
deiconified to trap the restoring event.

Hope this helped.
