I have a Frame where there are 3 buttons.
When i click on Button 1, Frame1 get opened.
and similarly on other buttons.

How to lock Frame1 so that the user is not able to get into the other frames. As he may shift between windows.
or how to lock the current window or frame.

You'll probably have to implement an event listener, so when the frame gets the focus, you can neuter it.

Generally speaking, there should only be one Frame/JFrame per application. Additional windows should usually be dialog types. If you make your additional windows extend JDialog instead, set them to modal, and they won't be able to open more than one at a time

What you can also consider is adding :

f.setFocusableWindowState(false);

Open in new window


where f is the JFrame instance of course.

Ok - not a great solution at all mine, as you know. And as CEHJ said, and I forgot to say, the best way is to use Dialogs for more modal flexibility. If it's not too late, you should consider that.
