    Unhappy DesktopPane

    when working with NetBeans, what is the purpose of adding a DesktopPane and then adding the InternalFrame rather than adding the InternalFrame at once?

    Default Re: DesktopPane

    Nothing to do with NetBeans. Read the API for JDesktopPane and JInternalFrame and follow the link to the Swing tutorials on How to Use Internal Frames.

    Your question is a classic example of using the NetBeans (or any other) visual designer without first learning how to correctly use Swing components and / or layouts. I strongly recommend you put aside the designer and learn first to hand-code your GUIs. Go back to the designer when you're capable of understanding the code it spews out.
