I am creating and running (setting visible) a JFrame from a JDialog, but the frame doesn't get any events, keys or mouse. When I click anywhere on the frame I get the Windows sound that I am clicking where nothing will happen. If you can point me to a web page or book to learn how to use the focus manager I will appreciate that too; CORE JFC by Topley and CORE Java from Sun didn't tell me much.
Your help will be appreciated,
Your help will be greatly appreciated,
I'm betting that your JDialog is a modal dialog, and that as such it will not allow focus to be transferred to a JFrame, even one it creates. If so, your choices are to either create the dialog non-modal, or why not launch another dialog from the first dialog instead of the JFrame? It seems backwards and strange to have a dialog launching a frame.
