I need to display a 'please wait while the system is busy box over my frame, but I don't want the user to have to press a button to exit. Like a JOptionPane without the button(s). My pseudo code would go like this:
show 'please wait while we do stuff' message box
do stuff that takes some time
erase message box
how can I do this?

One way would be to create a JDailog and make the modal parameter to be true. and when you are done with the task, dispose it.

Hope this helps.
