Good practise

2006-07-16 05:05:46 PM
New to coding in Java.
I have a constructor that sets up a JFrame with panels, buttons, etc. and I
want to disable some of the buttons when the frame first appears.
I will also need to disable selected controls during further processing,
probably using a purpose-built method.
I know how to do this.
Don't want to start a heated debate over this but...
My question: is it acceptable programming practise to invoke my purpose-built
method from within a constructor?
