First off, I dont mean I want the program to end. What I have setup is a simple game that shows pop-up windows that are either Info or Input windows and I would like to know how to close a child's window when it's child window closes.

So far its like this: Main Input Window launches Attack Input Window which launches an Information window. I want to know how to close the Attack Input window when "ok" is clicked on the Info window.

Heres the code related to it

You can use the dispose() method of the JFrame to close the window on some action.
