Hai Friends
I am new to Java
I have a doubt.
I have 2 Frames like..Frame1 and Frame2
In Frame1 a Button called "OK"
When i click that button (OK) from Frame1 ....the second Frame should open as a MODAL Frame.
Is it possible to Call another Frame class as MODAL ?
If anybody knows about this...please help me.
What shall i do in Frame1 and Frame 2 to make Frame2 as MODAL Frame.
Thanks in advance
Yours
Rajesh

Hi Rajesh,
You can not make Frames modal. The only class that can be modal is a Dialog. Look at the constructor of JDialog or Dialog to see where to specify if it is modal or not upon setvisible.

Manfred.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
