This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I wanted to ask - how do you get rid of a frame/contentPane completely without causing a program to terminate? I have used setVisible(false) but just empties the content pane- i just want to discard it.
Calling setVisible(false) on a JFrame completely removes it from the screen; calling dispose() on it ensures it could never be reused. Your message suggests you've tried calling aFrame.getContentPane().setVisible(false). I'm impressed by your creativity, but don't do that.
