Minimize, Restore and Maximize browser window (from Java applet)?

Hi,

I am running a Java applet and based on some events I want to maximize, minimize or or restore a minimized window.

I can call JavaScript or if possible do it in an applet (which I doubt).

Thanks!

PS.  I tried these - that I found on the Internet, but they did not work for me:

 function minimize_window(){
     window.blur();
 }

 show=1
 function minimize1_window(){
   window.moveBy(2000,2000)
   show=0
 }
 function reshow_window(){
   if(show==0) {
     window.moveBy(-2000,-2000)
     show=1
   }
 }

function minimize2_window() {
    window.innerWidth = 100;
    window.innerHeight = 100;
    window.screenX = screen.width;
    window.screenY = screen.height;
    alwaysLowered = true;
}

function maximize2_window() {
    window.innerWidth = screen.width;
    window.innerHeight = screen.height;
    window.screenX = 0;
    window.screenY = 0;
    alwaysLowered = false;
}

function maximize2_window() {
  window.moveTo(0, 0);
  window.resizeTo(window.screen.availWidth, window.screen.availHeight)
}
 function reshow_window(){
 window.focus()
}

Hi akoifman,

I use the following in the head of one of my .htm file to make itself full screen, and it works for me every time in IE.  But note:  this is in the file loaded into the popped browser window - it sizes itself.

Peace and joy.  mvan


<script>
// ----- take focus and open browser full size -->
      window.focus();
      window.moveTo(0, 0);
        av_height = screen.height - 20
        window.resizeTo(screen.width, av_height);
// ----- end open and full sizer code -->
</script>

This question has not been answered.  How to minimize a browser window.

You are right, I've only answered how to resize the browser, not how to minimize or restore it.  (Actually ... not even how to maximize it!)

I see you're really looking for minimize, maximize, and restore.

I don't have the answer at this moment.

Peace and joy.  mvan

According to: http:Q_20269069.html#6813358 you cannot use JavaScript to maximize a window.

According to: http:Q_10334328.html#2752410 you cannot minimize a window, because the 'method' does not exist.

If you created the window, you can restore it, using the .focus() method.  See:  http:Q_20656829.html#8781188

Peace and joy.  mvan
