Add a window listener to the frame, and prompt the user in the windowClosing() method.

hi,

Try this...it works...

===========================================================

JFrame JF = new JFrame("My Frame");

JPanel JPParent = new JPanel();

JF.getContentPane().add(JPParent, null);

JF.addWindowListener
(
 new java.awt.event.WindowAdapter()
 {
  public void windowClosing(WindowEvent WE)
  {
   int ChosenOption = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog
(
 JPParent,
 "Do you really want to exit?",
 "Exit Screen",  
 JOptionPane.OK_CANCEL_OPTION
);

   if(ChosenOption == JOptionPane.CANCEL_OPTION)
   {
// Do nothing is user presses 'Cancel'
    return;
   }
   else
   {
// Do whatever operation when you want is user presses 'Ok'...in this case --- Exits the application
    System.exit(0);
   }
  }
 }
);

===========================================================

Regards,
Uday.
