I have created a small gui window and I am tryin to call it from another class but when I call it from the other class, just a tiny sliver of a window opens.

If I run it from within the gui class it opens up correctly.

I am attaching both classes. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong please?

Your variable called 'frame' is redundant (AppWindow IS a frame) and causes problems. Get rid of it

This is what should happen when you follow my instructions:

The calling code is
AppWindowTest window = new AppWindowTest();
window.setVisible(true);

Open in new window

Did you try to run it? The classes stand on their own so you could if you want to see what I'm seeing. Change the window.frame.setVisible(true) to window.setVisible(true) and run it... there must be something else creating that weird behavior

crazy, well I will accept your solution as correct because I believe that what you are saying is the right way to run it. There must be something wacky going on with my environment...
