I have a Java user interface. The toolbar for the interface has a 'Help' menu. Once 'Help' is clicked, I want to display the help in a window that runs parallel(adjacent) to the current context window with both windows visible at the same time, like it works in Microsoft Office 2000. Please help.

just popup the help window at your desired location, modify the interface window size to fit with the help.
... or post some code.

or if you want that yellow kind of window help to be your help style window, you must use an JWindow instance object.
