So I am running into issues where I do not want to do certain things until my Frames main() method is complete. I.E. since the frame is still in an initializing state I want other function calls to behave a little differently. I know I know that is bad design but I didn't design the code and a re-design would be a nightmare at this point.

So I have some class that derives from JFrame and in it has a main to run.

So when I am doing other things once my frame is running can I call something on the MyFrame class to see if the main has completed?

If I cannot I supposed I could set a simple variable in MyFrame like isInitializing to true at the beginning of the main and set it to false at the end of my main. I just didn't know if there was something already built in, no need to reinvent the wheel.

If anyone else has any ideas on how to solve a problem like this i welcome you thoughts.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
