i've a link in my parent window. which when clicked will open a popup window. In this popup window, i've a applet running.Ive a button called exit which when clicked should close only the popup window.

But, when i use system.exit(0) it closes the popup and as well as the parent window.
Give me a better solution to close only that popup window.

Instead of calling System.exit( 0 ) in the actionListener for the button call .setVisible( false ) on a reference to the frame or dialog that holds the popup window. i.e. the name of your popup window.

Write once, run anywhere, because there's nowhere to hide! - /. A.C.

Frame extends Window. Window has a dispose() method that realeases the window/frame. In the previous reply if you setVisible to false, you still has an instance of the popup. This isn't necessarily bad, if you want the applet to popup more than once in the course of the running program
