can someone help me with something....

how do you create a frame which has a content pane which incorporates JDesktopPane as well as
a 'navigation pane' which controls the selection of the internal frames in the JDesktopPane? if this is even
possible, how do i also separate the jdesktoppane and the navigation pane with a JSplitPane?
please help. i only want to know how to set the different content panes for this one frame.
as a reference to what i'm talking about....anyone who has ever seen the IDE interface? i want something like that

Vic,
Sounds to me like a good place for you to start is in the Java Swing Tutorial. It will answer every single question you have asked here and has lots of sample code.

Have fun

Happy Coding,
