Im creating a project in java using netbeans. I have to create lots of forms for every operation.
So i created a menubar and add menu items in it. Instead of creating so many jframe forms i decided to create JPanel forms for evry operation. So in this way i can add one panel in the main frame on clicking the menu item.
After i click another menu item, i should be able to remove the prevoius panel from main jframe and add another panel to it..
but i cant do it.
i want to do it in netbeans only
can u tell me how to do it using netbeans???
is their any method of how to do it?
plzz show me wid example...
