    Default Separate method to create Window

    Hello!

    Just wondering where I need to extend JFrame to get this working...

    //imports
    import javax.swing.JFrame;
     
    //main class
    public class mainClass extends JFrame {
    	//class level variables
    	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
    	double wX,wY,wW,wH;
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
    /*
     *  Main method calls and creates windows, sprite, etc.
     *  Separate methods will be made to manage the calls
     *  */
    		createWindow(0,0,800,400,"Workbed");
    	}
     
    //create window method
    	static void createWindow(double wX,double wY,double wW,double wH,String windowTitle){
    		//window properties
    		setTitle(windowTitle);
    		setSize(wW,wH);
    		setLocation(wX,wY);
    		setVisible(true);
    		setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    		//window arguments
    	}

    When I extend it from the mainClass, it comes up with errors in the createWindow method...


    Thank you! Any other tips for this would be great!

    You are actaly not creating a window. You extend the class with JFrame. I find this really annoying, i always import it and use it as a instance, wich makes you more capable of making more windows at once.
