I have two JInternalFrames A and B that are added to a JFrame. A opens the other JInternalFrame C. After C is closed, the focus always returns to B not A. Do any of you know why?

This is controlled in the DesktopManager... I think the behavior of DefaultDesktopManager is just to set the focus on the first frame it gets from getComponents(). So basically the frame that has been added to the desktop the longest. Unfortunately, the method they call to do this is not part of the API, so you'll have to implement your own DesktopManager to do this in the closeFrame() method.

try using these methods...
.moveToFront();
.setSelected(true);

but you need to enclose the .setSelected method in a try catch block..

here's an example.. I'm using netbeans..



Hope it helps.. This is my first time to post here in coderanch..

It's not likely that Yingie Pitts is still looking for a solution 9 years after asking the question.
