JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Etc Etc"); - What does null actually do?
Been using JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,"Etc Etc"); for a while now, but it was never explained to me what "null" does
I had a read through the API definition but thats making it more confusing.
JOptionPane (Java 2 Platform SE v1.4.2)
Can anyone break it down so that its easier to understand.

That first parameter is the JFrame on top of which (read: in front of which) the JOptionPane should be shown; if you don't supply one (the parameter value is null) the JOptionPane creates an invisible JFrame on top of which it is displayed.
