    Default close original frame

    I have a frame (frame1) containing a button linking to another frame (frame2).
    when I click the button I want the first frame to close
    I've tried frame.setVisible(false);
    It didn't work any suggestions?

    What does "close" mean?

    What happened when you used dispose() or setVisible()?

    Add a component listener to the second frame, and when the frame is being shown dispose the first frame.
