Hi everybody,
I'm developing a chat application. Its almost over , but I have a problem here. Imgaine that a person is chatting with several people. Each of these chat boxes is a JFrame. So the user may minimize(iconify) any of these chat boxes(JFrames). In each of these JFrames i can know if some message comes in it. But suppose that a message came at a chatbox(JFrame) which was minimized, how do i restore the JFrame so that it is displayed on the screen. I Tried several things like.. show(); setVisisble(true); toFront().. etc... Please help me out
..Thanking you in advance...
...Kindest Regards
