Hi again, all.
I was having a minor problem, and wondered if someone could point me the right direction. Basically, within a GUI JFrame I want a button to pop up another dialog box, or what not. Then, I want that box to only be movable within the JFrame... if you move it out, it hides the portion that goes off. I guess this would make it a child window? Well, I am having trouble finding how to do this. Any places I should look, or examples I could see? Thanks again.

I think you should have a look at JInternalFrame
class.

Will do. Thanks.
Oh, and sorry for first posting in begginer-- thought it still qualified, but also didn't notice we had a forum just for this stuff... should have known. My apologies.
 
We can fix it! We just need some baling wire, some WD-40, a bit of duct tape and this tiny ad:
