Hello,
I got 2 frames, the first frame has text fields and combo boxes displaying a data record and the second frame let user choose a data record from a combo box to be displayed on the first frame. Both use data from a shared record object. If a user click on a button on the first frame, the second frame pops up and let user choose a new record. After clicking on a button on the second frame, the new data record displays on the first frame. My problem is to make the new data record displayed on the first frame. I make the first frame a member, and pass it as object to the second frame. Then I call the functions created in the first frame on the passed object to populate the displaying fields with data from new record, but somehow nothing were displayed. What did I do wrong? What are the alternatives? Please help. Thank you very much.

It sounds like you have the right idea. One thing you might need to do is explicitly trigger a redraw of the first frame. You can do that bu triggering another JFrame.pack(), or maybe by using JFrame.revalidate();
