I'm a very new programmer so this question may sound stupid but: How do i make a JButton close the current window and open a new one?For example a have an introduction screen in my program and when the user clicks on continue I want it to open the main application window. Thanx a lot!!
Thank u very much.u've been a great help. Another question... what documentation do i need to find commands like dispose etc.? is there any help program for java or a good reference book maybe?

The java api is a good site (you can download it, about 30mb zip) http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/index.html Depending on your IDE, if you download and instal the api docs, then point your IDE to where you've unzipped it, you can (generally) highlight the class name, click on help/JDK help and the api page will open. You can then go through all of the methods of the class (to see what they do), and check for inherited methods - in this case dispose() is a method of Window.
