If an applet is in fullscreen mode on Windows and the task bar is
hidden, what event is sent to the applet so the applet can resize itself to
fill the space left below when the task bar is hidden.
With the task bar showing, enter fullscreen mode by pressing F1 when the applet
has focus -- that is click in the applet first to get focus then press F1.
When the applet is in fullscreen mode, hide the task bar. See the empty space below
the taskbar? What event is sent to the applet that can be listened for so that the
applet can be resized?
I've tried the listening for the usual WindowEvents and none of those apply to this
situation because nothing is happening to the fullscreen window itself. It
is the environment of the window that is changing.
But this is an important issue. When users want fullscreen they want FULLSCREEN
and complain if there is a little space unused at the bottom. It looks unsightly anyway.
So my question is: what event should I listen for or if there is no relevant event why not?
