hi, i hv JMenuBar attached to Jframe. This JMenuBar has many JMenuitems attached to it(such as Edit, File, View, Help etc). This View has further menuitem called Draw attached to it. I have written a code on the actionP of this Draw menuitem which plots a graph. when this plotting is over those Menuitems such as View and draw are still displayed on the JFrame. They do net get dissappeared. I dont want to them to appear after plot is over. How to achieve this? pl, reply soon. thanx.
