I have the following code that produces a JDialog from an ActionEvent:

import java.io.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.util.*;

public class replaceWindow extends JDialog {
            
      JLabel jlbl = new JLabel();
      JTextField jtextField = new JTextField();
      JButton jbtn = new JButton();
      
      public void replace() {
            
            add(jlbl, BorderLayout.CENTER);
            
            setLayout(new GridBagLayout());
            GridBagConstraints c = new GridBagConstraints();
            c.fill = GridBagConstraints.HORIZONTAL;
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("0,0");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 0;
            c.gridy = 0;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("1,0");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 1;
            c.gridy = 0;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("2,0");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 2;
            c.gridy = 0;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("3,0");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 3;
            c.gridy = 0;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("4,0");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 4;
            c.gridy = 0;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("5,0");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 5;
            c.gridy = 0;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("6,0");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 6;
            c.gridy = 0;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("7,0");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 7;
            c.gridy = 0;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("0,1");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 0;
            c.gridy = 1;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("Search:");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 1;
            c.gridy = 1;
            c.gridwidth = 2;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("3,1");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 3;
            c.gridy = 1;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("4,1");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 4;
            c.gridy = 1;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("5,1");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 5;
            c.gridy = 1;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("6,1");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 6;
            c.gridy = 1;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("7,1");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 7;
            c.gridy = 1;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("0,2");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 0;
            c.gridy = 2;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jtextField = new JTextField ();
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 1;
            c.gridy = 2;
            c.gridwidth = 3;
            add(jtextField, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("4,2");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 4;
            c.gridy = 2;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("5,2");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 5;
            c.gridy = 2;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("6,2");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 6;
            c.gridy = 2;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            jlbl = new JLabel ("7,2");
            c.weightx = 1;
            c.gridx = 7;
            c.gridy = 2;
            add(jlbl, c);
            
            setTitle("Replace");
            pack();
            setLocation(300, 200);
            setResizable(false);
            setVisible(true);
            setSize(400, 200);
            setDefaultCloseOperation(DISPOSE_ON_CLOSE);
      }
      
}

When the first ActionEvent takes place, the JDialog box appears, when I close the JDialog box and attempt the same ActionEvent to trigger the JDialog box I get a runtime error.

Can anyone help ?

Didnt relise the code I posted above was so long, sorry about that, should have trimmed it.

The code above is in a file called replaceWindow.java and the following code is in my main class:

replaceWindow replaceMethod = new replaceWindow();

toolsMenu.add(jmiReplace = new JMenuItem("Replace"));
               jmiReplace.setMnemonic('R');
               jmiReplace.setAccelerator(KeyStroke.getKeyStroke("ctrl R"));

jmiReplace.addActionListener(new mnReplace());

class mnReplace implements ActionListener {
         public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent e) {
               replaceMethod.replace();
         }
}

u dispise of the dialog on close so its not available to open again
so either get gid of dispose on close
or create a new instance of replaceWindow each time

(btw, if you do the former you don't nweed to set up the dialog everytime, a simple setVisible() would suffice.)
