I recently starting learning Java, I have a pretty good grasp on C/C++ and wanted to expand my horizons. Anyway, I have being using the Headfirst Java book and recently finished the chapters on GUI. One thing that wasn't covered by the book was how to deal with child windows. I plan on using Java to make a time card system for my work place and anyone else that needs it (secondary question : When I finish my project could I post it on daniweb so others could download the source code to use/improve it?). So what I mean by child windows would be something like: The user would start on a name/password screen, after entering their information the login window would be replaced by a window that has the correct options for a user of his/her access level.
Any help on a class I need to research etc. would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
