This depends upon the operating system and window server you are programming to.
For instance, in my preferred development environments (NeXTstep, OpenStep, Mac OS X)
you would register a delegate of the Window that implements the windowDidExpose: and
windowDidResize: methods.

Uh, in MS Windows, after you've created your window and painted it, you'll get a WM_PAINT message whenever someone has stepped on you thereby requiring you to re-paint all or some portion of the window.
