Description:

This simple applet has only one purpose, which is circumventing a problem I've been having with maximized Plasma panels when switching displays :
they don't always stay maximized...

This applet helps alleviate this problem by doing three things :
- maximize a panel when the applet is added to it
- maximize a panel containing the applet when starting plasma
- provide an easily reached button for maximizing the panel even when plasmoids are locked

This applet won't be useful for everyone but I know I'm not the only one who's been hit by this problem, so I put this out there in case other people might need it.

Hello,

sorry, if I'm ignorant (maybe it's broken by design), but is there no way to apply this as a patch to Plasma?

actually, I'm not sure (about the broken by design part).
Sadly, I don't have the kind of time that would be required to really delve into the plasma codebase and see if it's possible to solve the problem at its source, whereas this small applet was easy enough to write
