    Form does not appear even after this.setVisible(true) [JAVA]

    Hello, I recently started GUI programming in Java with Swing. I am using NetBeans IDE and have attached my complete project with this thread.

    I have two classes.
    Login -> Is the GUI part with all labels, buttons ... (Without main method)
    Main -> Having main method.

    Code:
    /*   Main.java   */
    package main;
    
    public class Main {
    
        public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
            Login win = new Login();
            win.setVisible(true);
        }
    }
    Code:
    package main;
    
    import javax.swing.UIManager;
    
    public class Login extends javax.swing.JPanel {
    
        public Login() throws Exception
        {
            UIManager.setLookAndFeel("com.seaglasslookandfeel.SeaGlassLookAndFeel");
            initComponents();
        }   
        
        @SuppressWarnings("unchecked")
        // <editor-fold defaultstate="collapsed" desc="Generated Code">

            jLabel1 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
            jLabel2 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
            jLabel3 = new javax.swing.JLabel();
            cUser = new javax.swing.JTextField();
            cPass = new javax.swing.JTextField();
            cLogin = new javax.swing.JButton();
            cOut = new javax.swing.JLabel();
    
            jLabel1.setFont(new java.awt.Font("Ubuntu", 1, 16)); // NOI18N
            jLabel1.setText("Login Window");
    
            jLabel2.setText("Username");
    
            jLabel3.setText("Password");
    
            cUser.setName("");
    
            cLogin.setLabel("Login");

    Your Login class is a JPanel, which is not a window. You want a window to be displayed. So you either need to change your Login class to inherit from JFrame, so that it is a window that can be displayed, or create a JFrame and put the Login JPanel in it.

    From looking at your post it looks like you are using a designer to set up your Login class, so I would suggest creating a JFrame and adding your panel to it.

    Code:
    Login login = new ........
    
    JFrame frame = new JFrame();
    frame.setSize(300, 300); // Set the size of the window
    frame.add(login);
    frame.setVisible(true);

    The problem is that the way you have written Main.main, Swing doesn't start to run. You need to do it like this.

    Another problem you have with your code is that you setting the look and feel of your form with the SeaGlassLookAndFeel but you are not importing it to your project. You have to add the SeaGlassLookAndFeel jar's to your project libraries.
