Burp main jframe

Mehrdad Aug 24, 2017 01:25PM UTC

Where can I access a reference to Burp's main JFrame?
It's required for displaying JDialogs relative to it.

Hi Mehrdad,

Thanks for your inquiry.

If your extension implements ITab, the component you return from getUiComponent() is added to the hierarchy, and you can use getParent() repeatedly to get to the frame.

Perhaps there should be a dedicated API method for this. We’ll discuss that internally and get back to you.

I think we are going to add this, but not until we do a more major refactor of the API.

In the meantime, if you don’t have an ITab, you can use this code:

    Frame getBurpFrame() 
        for(Frame f : Frame.getFrames())
            if(f.isVisible() && f.getTitle().startsWith(("Burp Suite")))
                return f;
