Hi Experts,

I have developed an application and in my main menu I have a choice to graph data.
I am using JFreeChart library to develop graphs.
Everything is OK. I can get a chart but it is in a separate Chart panel and when I close the ChartPanel it also closes my whole application. What can I do ?

I want to be able to put the graph in my application and be able to close the graph without closinh my application

You need to

panelDisplayingFrame.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);

Here is part of my code when I create the Chart panel :


final ChartPanel chartPanel = new ChartPanel(chart);
chartPanel.setPreferredSize(new java.awt.Dimension(800, 400));
setContentPane(chartPanel);


Do I have to include this code ?

chartPanel.setDefaultCloseOperation(ApplicationFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);

This is my class declaration. it extends ApllicationFrame :

public class HighLowChartDemo extends ApplicationFrame {

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

My Listener is in my main application class but my ChartDemo class where I create my ChartPanel is in another class and package:

class MyChartListener extends AbstractAction{
           
                                     
                     //display message dialog when user selects Comments ...
                        public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent event )
                        {
                              
                        final HighLowChartDemo chrt = new HighLowChartDemo("eurodollars","Eurodollars Daily",quotes);
                      chrt.pack();
                      RefineryUtilities.centerFrameOnScreen(chrt);
                      chrt.setVisible(true);
                      setDefaultCloseOperation(ApplicationFrame.DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);

                           }
                             
                  }// My ChartListener



      public class HighLowChartDemo extends ApplicationFrame {

      protected String symbol = "";    
      protected Price         price;
      protected String configurationFile = "";      
      
      private double[] high;
      private double[] low;
      private double[] close;
      private double[] open;
      private int[] date;      
      private Date[] d;
      private double[] volume;
      public DBQuotes pointer;

      /**
       * Constructor
       * @param symbol
       */
      public HighLowChartDemo(String Symbol, final String title, DBQuotes point){
      
            super(title);
            this.symbol = Symbol;
            this.pointer = point;
            execute();
 
      }


private void execute(){

      
    /**
     * Loads Daily Prices
     */
    price = getPrices(symbol,pointer);        
    if (price.getSize()==0){
        System.out.println("No quotes founds for symbol "+symbol+", system can't works.");
        System.exit(1);
    }

    high = new double[price.getSize()];

          //System.out.println(price.getClose(i));
          open[i] = price.getOpen(i);
          //System.out.println(price.getOpen(i));
          date[i] = price.getDate(i);
 
           try{
                 DateFormat sdf = new SimpleDateFormat("yyyyMMdd");      
                 d[i] = sdf.parse(Integer.toString(price.getDate(i)));
                 }catch (ParseException e) {
                 }
          
                volume[i] = price.getVolume(i);

          final DefaultHighLowDataset dataset = new DefaultHighLowDataset("Chart for "+symbol,d,high,low,open,close,volume);
 
          // code for a candlestick type chart
          final JFreeChart chart = createChart(dataset);
          chart.getXYPlot().setOrientation(PlotOrientation.VERTICAL);
       
          
          /**code for bar chart only
          final JFreeChart chart = ChartFactory.createHighLowChart("High-Low-Open-Close Demo","Time", "Value",dataset, true);

Maybe I should include the ChartDemo class in my my application class and create the ChartPanel inside that class ?

I personally would make the container holding the chart a JDialog, not a JFrame
