I want to know if i can start many new JFrames from my main JFrame without showing a window for each JFrame in the taskbar.i'm launching new frames using pop up menues but the problem is that each frame starts a new window in the task bar.can i disable this behavior?

Why dont you use JInternalFrame instead of JFrame..


Lack of will power has caused more failure than lack of intelligence or ability.

Use a non-modal JDialog instead?
