How can I make a custom JDialog containing a JOptionPane which can be used for validating the users password and user name?
So, in this JDialog should appear:
1. an icon (questionmark) if possible
2. a JLabel "user name"
3. a JTextField for typing in the name
4. a JLabel "password"
5. a JPasswordField for typing in the encrypted password
6. a "cancel" and "ok" JButton
(7. Maybe a text, eg. "Please enter user name and password.")

Some code appreciated.

This dialog shall be invoked from within an JApplet!
Of course, I need some methods to handle the input (getValue(); ...).

See this portion of code from swingset demo program swingset.java




                JComboBox cb = new JComboBox();
                cb.addItem("One");
                cb.addItem("Two");
                cb.addItem("Three");
                message[0] = "JOptionPane can contain any number of components,
and any number options.";
                message[1] = new JButton("a button");
                message[2] = new JTextField("a text field");
                message[3] = cb;


                String[]      options = { "Option 1", "Option 2", "Option 3",
                                          "Option 4" };
                JOptionPane.showOptionDialog(SwingSet.this, message, "Example",
JOptionPane.DEFAULT_OPTION, JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE, null, options, options[1]);

You can use this as a template for building your own password dialog.

I think I should read the SwingSet-Examples more exactly! :-))
=> This would be cheaper (...but would take more time ;-) )
Thanks!!!
