Currently, i am developing a Desktop Application.

Problem:
Whenever i click the button, Method will be called from actionperformed method. That method will do the function.
The application won't respond to me whenever i click the button.

I come to know about Progress monitor and read the code in sun forum.
I don't know how to use it in my application.

Anyone give me some example with Swing Desktop app.(if you give some project, it will useful for me..)

I don't like ProgressMonitor. The user can close it whenever he feels like, even if the job isn't done yet. I prefer a SwingWorker in combination with a modal, non-closeable JDialog that includes a JProgressBar. The SwingWorker will update the JProgressBar through a PropertyChangeListener; there is an example of that on the SwingWorker Javadoc page.
