I have pasted the code below

Do you mean it *doesn't* repaint?
Otherwise I don't see the problem.

When you maximize your window it's a completely normal behaviour that it repaints.
What should appear at the extra space created by maximizing it? Nothing?
When you maximize a window you want it to use the extra space. No?

If you are not repainting on min/max, then you will get a blank frame.

Hi Muruga ! :))

Thanks for your code !

I have seen your code and  have understood that your are  redrawing by using some flags (boolean check) after window event changes !

By the way if we have 1000 of lines and rectangle with different coodinates  !  what we  will do !

I think you got the point !

I am in search of  some idea where the components should remain in the window without coding it to redraw again!

Frriendly,
Vijay
