18.26 java.awt.Frame (JDK 1.0)

This class represents an optionally resizable top-level application window with a titlebar and other platform-dependent window decorations. setTitle() specifies a title, setMenuBar() specifies a menu bar, setCursor() specifies a cursor, and setIconImage() specifies an icon for the window. Call the pack() method of Window to initiate layout management of the window and set its initial size appropriately. Call the show() method of Window to make a frame appear on the screen or to bring it to the front of the window stack. Call hide() to remove a frame from the screen. Call the dispose() method when the Frame is no longer needed so that it can release its window system resources for reuse.

The constants defined by this class specify various cursor types. In Java 1.1, these constants and the cursor methods of Frame are deprecated in favor of the Cursor class and cursor methods of Component.
