Thread: JFrame Exit Problem.

    Default JFrame Exit Problem.

    I created a class that loads up a JFrame, and that frame has JMenus and JMenuItems.

    One of those JMenuItems opens up a new JFrame, and when you close that JFrame (a customised calculator), the entire program closes, instead of just the 1 JFrame.

    How do I get around this?

    Default Re: JFrame Exit Problem.

    Don't call the System.exit(0) method. Check if the other JFrames use the setDefaultCloseOperation() method and what args it uses. Some will exit.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
