Two GUIs in one class using netbeans builder

Hi All,
I am creating a database app using netbeans GUI form builder to display a JTable with DB contents.
When the user wants to add to the DB i want to get input from a separate GUI by the click of a button.
Does anyone no if it is possible to create another JFrame dialog GUI in the same class as the main GUI in netbeans GUI builder?
Thanks
Ciaran

Not sure whether you really mean “same class”.
Sounds as though you want a dialog to appear. That is not difficult.

Wat i am looking for is something more rubust that can take allot more input fields than a JOptionpane.
So i need another separate GUI called from within the same class as my primary GUI when the 'Add Person' button is selected. So i am wondering is it possible to create two GUIs in one netbeans builder class or maybe i need to create a seperate class with 'get' compent methods to facilitate listening from another class.... Or create a i internal frame..

Whether NetBeans or not, you should look to create 2 GUIs in 2 different classes. You can then call one class from other by creating its instance.

You can have much more input than you see in the tutorials, even on an option pane dialogue. The Java Tutorials gives you only a simple start on dialogues.

Thanks.
I got what i needed by creating a array of JConponments (labels and text fields ) and adding this to a JOptionpane.
I didnt realise the JOptpane could take JPanels and jcomponents as arguments and also a JDialog is another top level container like JFrame.
I no i cant add one top level container to another but is there a limit to the number in one class?
