    Default Creating subsequent frames in java with Jframe

    Hi,

    I am making a small application. I want the first frame to be a sort of username / password login. When the user presses ok, and if the username and password are correct, then the next screen will appear (and if username and password are incorrect, an error dialog box appears).

    I am using NetBeans. I have created 2 frames, FrameOne and FrameTwo. In the main class, I have constructed the two frames and set them as visible, but the problem is that they pop up simultaneously. I want FrameTwo to appear only after FrameOne is closed.

    Any isead on how to do this?

    Thanks

    ublic class Main {
     
        /**
         * @param args the command line arguments
         */
        public static void main(String[] args) {
     
            FrameOne front = new FrameOne();
            front.setVisible(true);
     
            FrameTwo frametwo = new FrameTwo();
            frametwo.setVisible(true);
     
     
     
        }
     
    }

    Sounds like a job for a dialog: How to Make Dialogs (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)

    But you're setting both JFrames to be visible, so that's exactly what's going to happen. If you really want to use JFrames (use a dialog), you'll have to add a Listener to the first JFrame that pops up the other one upon closing. But use a dialog.

    KevinWorkman,

    Thanks for your reply. this will surely be helpful, but what I am after is something like when you are installing an application, and you get NEXT and then another screen pops up (killing the first one).

    I think the logic is the same as a dialog, but what i have to do is to call another frame rather a dialog. This is becasue i have some methods where the user would have to click on some buttons (i.e. in the second frame, the user will have to add or subtract a balance from an account.

    Do you agree with my logic?

    thanks

    That's fine. I'm still pretty sure you can do this with dialogs. But you could also just add the correct Listener- such as an ActionListener on a JButton, that sets the visibility of one JFrame to false and another to true.
