public class Form1 extends JFrame implements ActionListener {
...
public Form1() {
...
public static void main(String args[]) {
...
(new Form1()).setVisible(true);

What does the above line mean in Java terms please.


Thank you very much!

Just the last line? Well, new Form1() creates a new Form1 object. So that statement creates a new Form1 object, and then immediately calls its setVisible method.

You could also write it as:That's what you'd do if you needed to keep a reference to the form. If you don't, then you can do it all in one line, if you want.
