    Exclamation creating java desktop application


    i'm new to programming in java. for a uni project we have to design and develop a system. using the java desktop application it will simulate a PDA system.

    so far we have got the main interface, with buttons, label and texts fields. renamed all the variables and put in the events "actionperformed"

    after that we have no idea how to connect different frames with each other ie clicking a button and it takes you onto the next frame which would be the next page on the PDA system.

    this is what we have so far

    private void jButton2ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt)
    // this is where the code should be ?

    cant find much on connecting frames and getting buttons to work

    any help, tutorials,examples would be appricated so much just struggling

    i don't really know what you are looking for how your pda-application looks like but here How to Use Various Components (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components) you will find a lot of swing componenent and how to use them. if your question can be a little more specific also the answers can be more detailed.
