    Default System.exit(0)

    Hi guys, am in another dilemma; i have an application that calls several classes/methods one of the method is a LoginInterface() that is called by the main Application Launcher based on an action command from a button. Now the methods and classes work fine, but i want to cancel the LoginInterface() dialog without cancelling or exiting the entire application. How do i do it? I have used the:

       System.exit(0);

    and...

    return;

    statements, but the entire application is closed on execution of the system.exit(0) statement; Is there a better way of closing only the LoginInterface() catalog without shutting down the whole application!?

    Try the dispose() method. Not sure why the whole program would be closing when a child dialog is exited (well, System.exit() would explain it), but if the dispose() doesn't work, post the button's actionListener and the LoginInterface class.

    Is LoginInterface a JFrame (or extending from JFrame)? If so, you can set the default close operation?

    This is either a lesson to (1) ask a question on a programming forum and wait patiently for someone to answer, or (2) read the API of the class being used for a method or other solution and figure it out yourself. While in this case (1) worked, I suggest you become more independent and use (2) more often. That will build your confidence, knowledge, and skill as a programmer no matter what language you're using.

    Edit: Where are you? Argentina?
