JDialog.setMaximized(true)

How can I programatically maximize a JDialog? I don't see any setMaximized(true) that I can use.

Interesting... You can maximize them but you can't minimize them...

I suppose if you could find out the size of the screen you could just set it to be that big... I don't know think there's any kind of "set maximized" property, though. *looks at API again. Not that I can see, at least... Perhaps through a listener... but again, I don't see any way to actually do it...

Frame can be iconfied using
frame1.setState(Frame.ICONIFIED);
but could not see anything in JDialog

No, you can not iconise (minimise) a dialog, because it can not have an icon on the task bar below.
Yes, you can maximise a dialog, using the screen size or the (parent) application size.

Simply get that size and setBounds() it.
This question was asked several times before in EE.
