Hello I have a dialog that I can create and center on the screen fine. On it there are buttons off of which I launch another modal dialog box.. (Yes I know that I should use tabbed panes, however that is overkill for this app). The problem is that I cannot reference the frame of my original centered dialog box, therefore my second dialogs open in the default new Frame location of upper left.
What I am trying to do is make the second dialog open in the proximity of oneof the buttons of the first dialog. It, of course works then I do not centerthe first dialog. The second dialog always opens in the default location.
Hopefully not being excessive I have two other questions on this task. b. how does the centering work within an applet? Can I use the same Toolkit and Dimension techique. c. never having localized before and only needing text strings, do I create a "MyResource_locale.properties for every locale? This is probably equally obtuse, but how do I code the strings in the different caractersets? How do I create the strings in different charactersets like french or greek, etc? Thank you for any one response, thank you again interminably for all, grin.
