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);

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;

      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);

          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);

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
