window maximize/restore events

I have a problem with the window resizing.

On page load i have resized the window to some size (say 700*575) using
window.resizeTo(700, 575);

Now, the window is not in the maximized still it shows the "restore" button on the top right.... (i.e. the bar where you have minimise, maximize, restore and close) instead of a maximise button

When I click on that button it restores to the default size and then upon second click it goes to the maximised state.

I want it to maximize in a single click.

Can anyone let me know how do we do this?

What kind of window are You talking about ? Is it java.awt.Window or javax.swing.JWindow or javax.swing.JFrame ? I am asking because I cannot find resizeTo() method in any of these classes ! If You mean javax.swing.JFrame.resize(), it is better not to use it because it's deprecated.

To resize window use jFrame.setSize(100,100) method.
To maximize window use jFrame.setExtendedState(JFrame.MAXIMIZED_BOTH).
