I have some JInternalFrame class
And i have 1 JFrame to show all JInternalFrame that i have using JDesktopPane.

My problem is...i want to show JInternalFrame (A) from other JInternalFrame (B)...And what i want is user can not use other JInternalFrame or other menus, except he close the JInternalFrame (A) ==> modal

But all JInternalFrame (B, etc) that called from JFrame (not modal) can be choose and actif if user select it!!!

How to solve this problem....

The solution is to use the appropriate components. JInternalFrames are not designed to be Dialogs. Thats what a JDialog or JOptionPane is for. Use them when you need modal windows.
