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:


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

Hope this helped.
