i use netbeans, and use the drag and drop feature of netbeans to make applications in java. my problem is i have a splash screen, which is a separate class, and the java application(my application), how to combine those 2? I instantiate the splashscreen and call it in the constructor of my main class but it doesnt show up.

any help would be much appreciated. thanks

How about showing us an SSCCE that includes a very simplified version of your main app and the splash screen?

For example this is my main application class

and this is my splashscreen

the 2 screens will pop up together, instead the splash screen will be first and then the application's Frame.

You're putting the EDT to sleep and thus your whole GUI with this code:

If you are not familiar with the EDT or what I'm stating above, please read about Concurrency in Swing
I agree. Here's the link:
