How do you make another window appear
Ok, here is the situation. I am working on my final project for my java programing class at school and I have run into a bit of a problem. I need to know how to bring up a new "window" when I click something on the main GUI window. For example, I have a menu item that says help, and I have a class in the same package as the main GUI window called help.java. Basically, this help class is a window all in inself in that it extends JFrame and has a main method from which it can open. I've added an action listener to
my help menu item, what should I do in the action performed method to make this help window pop up?
