Hi, I'm not really a Swing expert so my question may be a little naive, but here it goes.
I'm creating a plugin that implements ProjectComponent
in my projectOpened method before I do a bunch of analytical initialization junk i would like to present for the duration of this work a little message window saying it is doing something. I tried creating a frame with a panel and JLabel message in it, called the pack and show method, then called a method which does a lot of processing, when that is done, call the dispose method on the frame.
sorta like this
Tester tester = new Tester();
It sort of works, the window pops up and closes at the right time, but the JLabel is not displayed. If i remove the dispose method, the label shows up after all my processing is done.
