What is the use of the below statement

frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);

in the above code as it appears to run same way whether i have
that line or not when i run it from eclipse..

Thanks in advance.

Check the tutorial for more information.
Also check in Eclipse does your program terminates when you omit that line of code, so you'll see the difference.


The quieter you are, the more you are able to hear.

The method does what it says. Have you read the description in the API?

And since this is a Swing question, I shall move it to the GUIs section.


luck, db
There are no new questions, but there may be new answers.

it runs the same way without that call. It is whether it stops that is the question

I was running the code through eclipse.. When i close the gui window
there was no visual indication of the program being terminated.
Only on looking closely i could find out that there is an indicator of
the program being terminated and that too a small and obscure one

So i said it was tough,,Anyway now i got it

Thanks
