    Default launching Jframe from text field

    Hey

    I want to click on a textfield (i.e two clicks) so that this then opens up a jframe which i then enter text in using buttons to then add this data to the system. How do i go about opening the panel from the text field as i have the panel with the text entry complete.

    thanks

    Do you know about listeners?
    Do you know how to open a JFrame?
    Put the code to open the JFrame in the listener.

    Or please explain more or post your code with comments in it about what you want to do.

    Read the API doc for the textfield. It has add...Listener methods.
    Do a search for the methods you find for sample code.

    What does "embed it" mean?

    Also, are you sure that you really don't want to use a modal JDialog and not a JFrame?
