If there is such a thing, I can't think of any way it would be
communicated to the application, and if it were, making the screen
dimensions smaller than what is required to hold all of the components
could also have bad consequences.
When using a layout manager (as most applications probably do),
individual panes/sub-panes of a window are populated with their
components until there is no more room. When the available space is
exhausted, the remaining components are still linked to their panes, but
they are not visible (and therefore can't be used). If you resize the
window to make it larger, such 'invisible' components become visible again.
Since "OK" buttons tend to be at the bottom of a window, and to the
right, if there isn't enough space for one of the buttons, the "OK"
button could very well be the one that becomes invisible, so you still
have the problem.
By sticking to the minimum screen dimensions, at least you can
Alt-Click-Drag the window to expose the needed controls (buttons).
