Deiconify a JInternalFrame from program

My application has a JDesktopPane with several JInternalFrames. The internal frames can be iconified.
I want to be able to deiconify a internal frame from within my program (do the same as the Swing toolkit does, when a user clicks on an iconified internal frame, restore it to its last position and size.
I've tried : myInternalFrame.reshape(x,y,width,height);
but nothing worked

how abou this
**********from JDK help*********
public void setIcon(boolean b)
             throws PropertyVetoException
Iconizes and deconizes the frame.
b - a boolean, where true means to iconify the frame and false means to deiconify it
PropertyVetoException - when the attempt to set the property is vetoed by the receiver.
