    Default Calling / Updating class?

    Hi guys,

    I have 2 classes, two JFrame classes in NetBeans.

    The first one has a public Main() and the other has a public Maintain(), from the maintain I'm trying to re-trigger the commands in the public Main() <- the commands that run on the start up of the form.

    Can someone help? is there a command round this? thank you (:

    By commands do you mean you want to call the methods in a class?
    If you have a reference to the Main class, you can call methods in that class.
    For example in one of the Maintain class's methods:
    aRefToMain.someMethod(); // call someMethod in the Main class
    Here: aRefToMain is a reference to an instance of the Main class and someMethod() is a method in that class.

    Yup I did that but one method runs fine, the other doesnt give me any returns.. and the methods are fine... can it be because it accesses jLabels etc on the form?
