Close one Frame open another?

Hi folks,
I have a JFrame with a button. When the button is pressed I want to close the current frame and open a new one.
I find that dispose() and System.exit(0) kill both frames! Any ideas?
regards
Simon Ingram

System.exit(0) stops ALL processes, including the new frame, so that's a bad idea. Just use dispose() after you create the new JFrame, and you should be fine. You may also need to change the default close operation (I think by setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.DEFAULT_NO_CLOSE) or something similar to that), so if just using dispose() doesn't work, check the documentation for that.

Thanks, Jeremy
the dispose on its own does the trick! I did not need to setDefaultCloseOperation.
Thanks once again
