How know if a stack is maximized ?

One method is to make your own title bar set of graphics as buttons (take a
screen shot), set the window decorations to false (don't use the default
system title bar), then when the user clicks to maximize, or chooses to
resize, you are in control of all the operations, even the 'close and quit

You can even allow user preferences, such as resize-in-place,
center-in-screen, align along left side of monitor, shrink to fit content,
expand to show details, etc.

Hope you find your solution.
