how to pass info from a main class to Jdialog ???

Situation:
----------
I have a main class that call up a JDialog.
After call the JDialog, the main class should
do some calculation and pass the info to that JDialog so that it can update the TextArea inside it.

My Problem is:
--------------
   After the JDialog is showed on the screen, it is just waiting for the user interaction. The calculation part does not run until I close the JDialog.

Guys, can you help?

Write a class which extends JDialog, add a method to that class which does the calculations. Call that method in its constructor.
