Hello,

I was wondering if the top level JDialog can have a minimize button ? I found how to do it for a JInternalFrame but I don't think I can use this as my top level window for the application (is this correct ?)

------ code----------
ABConsole m_console = new ABConsole();
m_console.show();
------ end code------

where :

ABConsole is

------ code----------
public class ABConsole extends JDialog
{
.....
}
------ end code------

what do I need to do to enable the "minimize" button in the title bar?

hi !
dont think u can make it using JDialog...
since it has been design to be in this way...
in order to fulfill ur requirement...
u can try using a normal frame or window to sinmulate as a dialog...:)

try this,

public class ABConsole extends javax.swing.JDialog {

    public ABConsole(java.awt.Frame parent, boolean modal) {
        super(parent, modal);
        initComponents();
    }

    private void initComponents() {
        addWindowListener(new java.awt.event.WindowAdapter() {
            public void windowClosing(java.awt.event.WindowEvent evt) {
                closeDialog(evt);
            }
        });
       
        pack();
    }

    /** Closes the dialog */
    private void closeDialog(java.awt.event.WindowEvent evt) {
        setVisible(false);
        dispose();
     System.exit(1);
    }

    /**
    * @param args the command line arguments
    */
    public static void main(String args[]) {
     new ABConsole(new javax.swing.JFrame(), true).show();
    }
}

Hi Kotan, that just kills the whole dialog. I was looking for a minimize button.

perhaps it is 'abusing' the JDialog functionality. I decided to go with a Frame instead. thanks
