    Smile Switching Between JFrames - Please help!

    Hey there!
    Is it possible to switch between a JFrame? i.e When one button is clicked on my JFrame, I want it to open another JFrame immediately. If so, how? Thanks

    I suggest you use a JDialog as the second container rather than another JFrame. And, yes, of course it's possible. If you have code that tries to accomplish this amazing feat but falls short, then please post it, and we'll help you fix it.

    Ok so this is probably a really stupid question - what's a JDialog? I've never used one *embarassedface* And by calling it an "amazing feat" are you implying that it's rather difficult? Thanks

    Nope, not difficult. It is amazing and especially challenging to those new to OOP who have not yet switched their thinking of programming as creating and acting on objects.

    For Java information about classes, including Swing components that you've never heard of, refer to the API. When you Google, "jdialog," for example, the first result will usually be that item's API page. You might also try "jdialog tutorial" to find the Java Tutorial on the subject.

    You might be thinking of JOptionPane and its show dialog methods. You would normally learn that before learning about JDialog, but I could be wrong.
