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

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.
I agree. Here's the link:
