Window closing exception
I'm currently doing a project with a container and all and I'm not too used with it yet.
The program handles datas coming from a random access file and everything gets messed up if the user clicks on the red X.
I want to know how make the program makes his how exception when the user closes the window.
And I don't want to just disable the window, because on some windows, I want to use the red X as a back button, so that it shows back the previous window instead of ending the execution.
As far as my understanding is concerned you want to open a child window upon clicking something and after the usage you want to go back to the parent window upon clicking the X mark on the window.
If this is the case then you need to use another container in a parent container and need to open the child container and upon clicking the X on the window you need to close the child container in the event corresponding to the window closing.
If still needs any clarifications then please describe your problem well.
I think you have to use WindowListener
Narayana, this is exactly what I want to do, and I already knew I had to close the corresponding child window in the correspounding even method. I know I must use the windowListener to listen to the X button, but that is exactly what I want to know how to do.
