I am writing a small swing application that uses a menu to run the different sections of the program. These sections are supposed to give feedback to the user in a JScrollPane throughout the entire process. The problem is when I choose my menu option the menu stays open while the process runs and I get no feedback until it is completely done running the process.


So now my question, how do I get the menu to close before the process starts so that I can get constant feedback from my process to the JScrollPane?


Thanks!

you would have to move your time-cosuming tasks out of the event-thread.



this means, you should only start a thread from the menu-clicked/selected event-handler.



more help for more info.
