I open other modal frame by JMenuBar when I return in my root frame. The MenuBar is always opened. how do I close it ?
CODE :
private JMenuBar menuBar;
private JMenu menuFile;
private JMenuItem JMFile;
private JMenuItem JMProg;
......
JMFile.setText("File");
menuFile.add(JMFile);
JMProg.setText("Prog");
menuFile.add(JMProg);
menuFile.setText("Menu");
menuBar.add(menuFile);
jf.setJMenuBar(menuBar);

JMFile.addMouseListener(new java.awt.event.MouseAdapter() {
public void mousePressed(java.awt.event.MouseEvent evt){
JFileCh.showOpenDialog(jfFile);
System.out.println( JFileCh.getSelectedFile
).toString());
//JMFile.
jf.validate();
jf.repaint();

}

Hi,

Why don't you use addActionListener() instead of addMouseListener()?

Looks like your problem maybe because the showOpenDialog() call does not return until the user has finished with the dialog. Thus any pending mouse listeners (such as the menu) will not get called.
Try running the dialog code in a seperate thread.

new Thread() { public void run() {
  JFileCh.showOpenDialog(jfFile);
  System.out.println( JFileCh.getSelectedFile).toString());
}}.start();
