Hi,
I have a form which takes username and password and authenticates the user. I need to open a new form once OK is clicked. How to I do it?

You can look up for JDialog or may be JInternalFrame

> I need to open a new form once OK is clicked.

that is most unusual - the form is to open before the validation of username/password?

anyway, can you comfortably display a JFrame?

if so, your program should open with a JDialog requesting username/password. In the background
construct your JFrame, but do not set it to visible.

When the OK button is clicked:
validate username/password
if valid, frame.setVisible(true) and dialog.dispose()

I tried this code and it worked fine.

I now want to know how to close the parent frame automatically when the OK button is clicked.

Call dispose() on the JFrame object, which you wish to close.

Shikha as Michael Dunn said use the dispose() method

eg : if your parent frame is Form1 then it works like this

Agree with Mohammed earlier. You want a JDialog, which disappears after use. Much better than trying to create two frames and dispose of the second.
Actually, you can probably use the setDefaultCloseOperation method on the frame, with DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE, so the dispose() call may be unnecessary.
