My environment is win2000+java1.2
Now I have build two Swing Jframe : frame1 and frame2. The frame1 is current shown in the screen . The other Jframe , frame2, is minimized . I want to when I click a button in the frame1, the frame2 can maximize and be shown in the current screen .
But I don’t know how to do this ? I have try to use the method requestFocus() to deal with it , but it can not work correctly . Who can tell me how to do this ? Please tell me in every detail. ThanX!

Perhaps you could try dispose() method instead to hide any frame at any given time...or perhaps the better way is to use JInternalFrames..never tried it but perhpas this could work..
All the best....

I did something that jumps between 2 JFrames before.
1. pass frame2 to the frame1.
2. when the button is pressed, if frame2 is minimized, then call if (frame2.getState() == JFrame.ICONIFIED) frame2.setState(JFrame.NORMAL); then you can max the size by yourself. If frame2 is showing behind the frame1, then call frame2.show() to bring it the sceen.
Good luck!
