This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I have a situation very similar to the one described in this link: http://www.javaranch.com/ubb/Forum2/HTML/001601.html What I'm wanting to do is reference a member variable within the class that started up the instance of the dialog. In other words, once the dialog (a descendant of JDialog) is started, I want him to be able to 'see' a variable within the parent JFrame. I'm very new to Swing. Is there some sort of getParentObjectThatStartedMeUp method that I could use to refer back to the JFrame? Thanks for any help, Rick Crawford [This message has been edited by Rick Crawford (edited September 24, 2001).]
