You can't remove close Button from JFrames, but you can disable by calling setDefaultCloseOperation(WindowConstants.DO_NOTHING_ON_CLOSE) on that JFrame.

Actually you could try this but I really don't think it's what you want, it's going to remove all window decorations (there will be no title bar, etc.) and I'm not even sure if it's supported on all platforms. I don't think it works on pre 1.4 either.

Also look into JWindow which is similar, no titlebar with buttons and what not.

Hi,

Use JWindow instead of JFrame, the 3 buttons won't appear on JWindow.

Welcome to JavaRanch, Sean.
Thank you. Actually there are ways to remove the X button from a JFrame, somebody showed us how last year, but I can't remember when.
