It might be maximized in the sense that the stack is the maximum
height/width of the windowBoundingRect but it might not be maximized
in terms of whether or not the user clicked the zoom button on OS X
or the Maximize button on Windows.
Take this for example -
I open Notepad on Windows. I resize the window with my document just
how I want it. I close Notepad and the next time I reopen it the
window is just how I left it. I then click the Maximize button and
the Notepad window fills the screen. If I quit Notepad and relaunch
the window does not reopen to fill the entire screen but rather that
size it was before I clicked the maximize button.
Is there an easy way to reproduce this behavior with Revolution since
there is no property which reports that a stack is
'maximized' (though we do have an 'iconic' property)? The user may
have manually resize the window to fill the screen, in which case you
should restore the window to that size the next time your app
launches, or they may have used the maximize button to fill the
screen in which case you should restore the window to the size it was
prior to clicking the maximize button.
I filed an enhancement request for this but if I'm missed something
obvious I would love to know.
