    Default Alternatives to JFrame

    Are there any alternatives to JFrame that can be used as a parent Frame?

    What do you want to show in the window?
    What is the problem with JFrame?

    There is no problem just wondering if there is an alternative, I want it to act as the parent for the FileDialog.

    What options does the API doc have for that?

    It says Frame parent as the first parameter, JFrame is one type of Frame that would satisfy this condition I was wondering if there would be anything else.

    The only choices are what are listed in the API doc. Which have you tried?
    What problem(s) are you having using them?
    Often another choice is null.

    You can use a JDialog to do anything you can do with a JFrame and more. As Norm asked, it would be helpful to know WHY you've asked, but if you just have a random curiosity that's keeping you up nights, that's okay too.
