Why shell.close() disposes the Shell instance ?

Thanks,
Helene

Hi Helene,

It's doing what the javadoc describes (pasted below). If you want to make a
Shell go away but then show it again later then you can use
setVisible(boolean).

/**
* Requests that the window manager close the receiver in
* the same way it would be closed when the user clicks on
* the "close box" or performs some other platform specific
* key or mouse combination that indicates the window
* should be removed.

Thanks fro the answer Grant.

Then why does the close method have been created for the Shell class, the
dispose one was sufficient ?

Shell.close() requests that a Shell be closed in the same manner as if the
user had clicked on the close box. Applications can cancel this using the
SWT.Close event.
