I'm having trouble with Runnable :crying: one more time. I have this piece of code in my class:

	SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
	     public void run() {
	           Congratulation congratulation = new Congratulation();
	            /*try {
		       } catch (InterruptedException e) {}*/

As it is (Thread.sleep() commented) working fine. But when trying to have 3 sec and after this dispose() my image on congratulation Frame not displayed, :confused: but I can see the Frame that created.

Please help

Thank you,

Im not that good with Threads in Java but i found a thread that might help you form the Java forums:
dispose() does not work here

Hope that would help you.

I'd use a timer instead:
How to Use Swing Timers (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Other Swing Features)

Working with concurrency isn't an easy task by the way.

You make the Swing thread sleep, so everything swing related won't do anything anymore.
But, if you see your frame without an image.. are you sure the code of the frame isn't wrong, rather than this thread code?
