This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi folks, I have a JFrame with a button. When the button is pressed I want to close the current frame and open a new one. I find that dispose() and System.exit(0) kill both frames! Any ideas? regards Simon Ingram
System.exit(0) stops ALL processes, including the new frame, so that's a bad idea. Just use dispose() after you create the new JFrame, and you should be fine. You may also need to change the default close operation (I think by setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.DEFAULT_NO_CLOSE) or something similar to that), so if just using dispose() doesn't work, check the documentation for that.

Thanks, Jeremy the dispose on its own does the trick! I did not need to setDefaultCloseOperation. Thanks once again Simon
