Hi,

I'm having a small yet annoying problem that I've been trying to get my head around for quite some time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am recalling data off a Vector and displaying it on a JTextArea using code like this:

menu.genreTextArea.append("Found the following CD(s), whilst searching for: " + search);
menu.genreTextArea.append("\n");
menu.genreTextArea.append("Name: " + displayCD.name);

etc... etc....

However, instead of displaying this text in the JTextArea within a JFrame, it opens up a whole new window of the same program to display it.

My code is attached if you should need to look at it.

Thanks for your time.

Crisko.
