Multiple jFrame Netbeans App -> calling methods in one jFrame from another
posted 5 years ago
I have created a netbeans Java application with 2 jFrames (mainScreen, newCallout). In mainScreen, as a subcomponent, I have created another jFrame called searchScreen. The reason I have this as a subcomponent, is because it only allows one instance of searchScreen to run. mainScreen also has a button to open the searchScreen along with the actionPerformed method to open it. That works fine.
My problems is now that I want to access the actionPerformed method in mainScreen to open searchScreen from newCallout. The method is public, but it does not want to find it.
I know I have done this before, but I haven't done any programming in a while...
