    Question Problem with a JFrame method

    This is my java program and I can't understand the difference between (JFrame.HIDE_ON_CLOSE) & (JFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE ) methods.Can you please explain this?

    import javax.swing.*;
    class DemoJLabel extends JFrame{
    JLabel lbl1;
    DemoJLabel(){
    lbl1=new JLabel("My Label");
    add(lbl1);
    setTitle("JLabelDemo");
    // setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.HIDE_ON_CLOSE);
    pack();
    setVisible(true);
    }
    }
    class MyDemoLabel{
    public static void main(String []args){
    DemoJLabel jlabel=new DemoJLabel();
    }
    }

    Default Re: Problem with a JFrame method

    Dispose actually disposes the window and all its associated components. Hide just hides the JFrame, in case you wish to make the window visible again with the same state(s) it had when it was closed.
