I have a java application with a button that connects to a database and retrieves some information.
When I click the button I want another window(a JTextArea with scrollPane) to pop-open seperately and display the information.

Does anyone have an idea how to do this?
I cant seem to find anything suitable on the web.

thanks.

just place the new window invoking code in a action listener of the button u need to click
class OtherWindow extends JFrame{
           public OtherWindow(){
               /* codes */
              this.setSize(300,400);
              this.show();
           }
}

class CurrentWindowextends JFrame{

    public CurrentWindow(){
         JButton bt1 = new JButton("open");
          bt1.addActionListener( new ActionListener(){
                    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
                          /* code for the new Window to open */
                             new OtherWindow();
                   }
         });
   
          this.getContentPane().add(bt1);
        this.setSize(100,200);
           this.show();
    }

     public static void main(String[] args){
           new CurrentWindow();
     }
}
