How to Detect JFrame Resizing

There are a couple of ways to track JFrame resizing. This method uses a while(true) loop, setting Thread.sleep to wait for some specified period of time. However, you could just as well use a timer class.

Put this method inside your class that extends JFrame and call it:

public void resizecatch()
{
    int w = getWidth();
    int h = getHeight();
    while(true)
    {
        if(w != getWidth() || h!= getHeight())
        {
            System.out.println("JFrame has been resized");
            //put other actions here you want done...
            w = getWidth();
            h = getHeight();
        }
        try{Thread.sleep(300);} catch(InterruptedException e) {}
    }
}

This approach also catches JFrame resizing when users are in the process of resizing the frame (when they're still holding down the mouse button).
