  try{
  String str = JOptionPane.showInputDialog

(
null, "Enter number of frames :",
 
"Roseindia.net"1);
  int i = Integer.parseInt(str);
  for (int j = 1; j <= i; j++){
  iframe = new JInternalFrame("Internal Frame: " + j, true, 

true, true, 
true);

  iframe.setToolTipText("Internal Frame :" + j);
  }
  }
  catch(NumberFormatException ne){
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Please enter number value."

  JMenuBar menubar = new JMenuBar();
  JMenu count = new JMenu("Count Total Frames");
  count.addMenuListener(new MyAction());
  menubar.add(count);
  frame.setJMenuBar(menubar);
  frame.add(desk);
  frame.setSize(400,400);
  frame.setVisible(true);
  }

  public class MyAction implements MenuListener{
  public void menuSelected(MenuEvent me){
  int i = desk.getAllFrames().length;
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Total visible internal frames 
are : " 
+ i,
 
"Roseindia.net"1);
  }

  public void menuCanceled(MenuEvent me){}

  public void menuDeselected(MenuEvent me){}
  }
