    Default WindowBuilder - How do I open a seperate class window by a button?

    Okay I have 2 classes with different windows constructed in them. I want a button from my main window to open the window in my other class, I've searched a lot on google, I'm either not understanding it or it's not what I'm looking for. This forum looks very friendly and willing to help newbies so I joined

    The button listener in the main class needs a reference to the instance of the other class so it can call a method in the other class where the window can be opened.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
