public class: WindowState [javadoc | source]
The WindowState class represents the possible window states that a portlet window can assume.

This class defines a standard set of the most basic portlet window states. Additional window states may be defined by calling the constructor of this class. If a portal/portlet-container does not support a custom window state defined in the portlet application deployment descriptor, the custom window state will be ignored by the portal/portlet container.
Field Summary
public static final  WindowState NORMAL    The NORMAL window state indicates that a portlet may be sharing the page with other portlets. It may also indicate that the target device has limited display capabilities. Therefore, a portlet should restrict the size of its rendered output in this window state.

The string value for this state is "normal"

public static final  WindowState MAXIMIZED    The MAXIMIZED window state is an indication that a portlet may be the only portlet being rendered in the portal page, or that the portlet has more space compared to other portlets in the portal page. A portlet may generate richer content when its window state is MAXIMIZED.

The string value for this state is "maximized"

public static final  WindowState MINIMIZED    When a portlet is in MINIMIZED window state, the portlet should only render minimal output or no output at all.

The string value for this state is "minimized"

 public WindowState(String name) 
    Creates a new window state with the given name.

    Upper case letters in the name are converted to lower case letters.

    name - The name of the portlet mode
