    Default Re: How to use a component in a JFrame inside another JFrame?

    A Component can only have one parent, so you cannot add a Component to multiple Containers. You must create a new Component and add it to the second - if you wish to mimic the behavior between each (eg when one is selected the other becomes selected) you will need to coordinate ActionListeners between the two.
