    Default Help with setEnabled

    Hi guys!

    I have this problem... I want to disable my main window when another window from another class is called.

    This is the code of my main_window.java that opens the new JFrame:

    Java Code:
    		if(e.getSource()== OpenFrame){ 
    			second_window.main(null); //it calls a new JFrame  and you aren't supposed to use the main window while the new one is active.
    			this.setEnabled(false); // this is why with this we disable the main window
    		}
    And this is the code of my secondary window called second_window.java this closes the new window and tries to go back to the main:

    Java Code:
    		if(e.getSource() == btnGoBack){
    			this.dispose(); // it closes the second window
    // Here is the problem-------
    			main_window.main(null); // if I call main_window again now there are 2 of them, one enabled, one disabled, obviously I don't want that.
    // I need to find a way to enable from here (I guess) the main window
    
    		}
    Thanks in advance
