Dispose window without shutting down whole program
I'm back again :P I have this program that opens up a window. There's options menu that opens in a new window and what I want to happen is when I close the options window, it doesn't shut the program down. I know that
Will close down my window but I looked at the documentation and it doesn't have a solution for my problem. Can anyone be kind enough to help? Thanks (:
// different close actions are available, that do different things! frame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);

..(will) look into other window managers
It is not so much 'window' managers we need here as 'view' managers. Those views (e.g. each in a panel) might then be managed by dialogs, option panes, pop-ups, tool bars, layout managers, (very rarely) other frames or windows..
The content you mention seems well suited to being displayed in a (possibly modal) dialog.
