how to define the size of window on maximize click?

Harpreet,
     The function of the browser's Maximize control button is not 
within the control of Internet-based JavaScript.  Some browsers do 
support an event which is ultimately triggered as a result of the user 
clicking that button, though.  Check out what the following tells you:
function CheckWindowSize()
{
    if (document.body.offsetWidth)
        alert(document.body.offsetWidth + 'x' +
              document.body.offsetHeight);
    else
        alert(window.innerWidth + 'x' + window.innerHeight);
    return true;
}
window.onresize = CheckWindowSize;
window.onload = CheckWindowSize;
     Then, at one time you could use the window.resizeBy() or 
window.resizeTo() methods to change the window dimensions.  However, 
you may find that recent browser security changes may get in the way 
of your efforts in this area.
Take care,
Dave Clark
