How to load the main frame while pop up login dialog?
I wrote a small swing application for our HR, now they would like to have some "security". Basically they want a user name and password screen so Mr. Joe can not look at the data. My question is how can I go about loading the main frame in the background but make it not accessable until user pass the login screen (setVisible?)? does it require thread? :) it'll be my first thread realated coding so please help me out. I came from VB background so please take it easy on me.
I saw a "login" screen http://java.sun.com/products/jlf/ed2/book/index.html it's pretty nice that I would like to "plug" into my current.
