Window : Java Glossary


Like a Frame, but without borders or menu bar. A generic term for both a Frame and Dialog. Windows can accept keystrokes. Unlike Frames, Windows always have owners. The Swing equivalent in a JWindow.

You can close a window with setVisible( false ) on with dispose() if you don’t plan to open it again soon.
