    Default Call windowClosing from JButton

    Hello!

    I have a JFram, a JButton and wonder if it is possible to somehow call the windowClosing-method from a click at the JButton. The reason why I'm using windowClosing instead of windowClosed is when someone click at the JButton, or the default close button in the right corner, the program ask if one really want to exit the program.

    Generally, yes. The JButton has an actionListener which has an actionPerformed() method. In the actionPerformed() method, call the windowClosing() method. If you want more specific help, show some relevant code.

    Why call the windowClosing method? That is normally done by the jvm in response to a user action.
    Is the button supposed to close the window in the same way as a click on the window's system menu close?

    You could make a method that both listeners call to ask the question and return the user's response to the "are you sure" question.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    i think a program should have one frame and many frame containers, and should use show/hide.
