Hi,

I need a message box similar to JOptionPane.showMessageDialog() but without the OK button (I want the program to close it.) Is there anyway to do this without coding a custom dialog?

Thanks,

Wall

JDaiolg g = new JDialog();

What is wrong with creating your own dialog?

                JDialog myDialog = new JDialog((JFrame)null, "Title");
                myDialog.getContentPane().add(new JLabel("My message", SwingConstants.CENTER));
                myDialog.pack();
                myDialog.show();

Hi Javatm.  Perhaps I shouldn't have taken the time to test my layout ;-)

if you just want there to be no cancel button then you should be able to do it in one line.


JDialog dialog = new JOptionPanel("Message Goes Here", JOptionPanel.PLAIN_MESSAGE, CANCEL_OPTION).createDialog(null, "Title");


i've not tried it so you might have to "dialog.show()" or something to see it but that should do the trick.

if this doesn't work please let me know.

Thanks for the replies.


JDialog myDialog = new JDialog((JFrame)null, "Title");
myDialog.getContentPane().add(new JLabel("My message", SwingConstants.CENTER));
myDialog.pack();
myDialog.show();

This kindof works, except it shows in the top left hand corner, is too small, and doesn't show the message. I will have to do more configuration to get it to look like a normal information box.

JDialog dialog = new JOptionPanel("Message Goes Here", JOptionPanel.PLAIN_MESSAGE, CANCEL_OPTION).createDialog(null, "Title");

This one kinda works as well, however the buttons are still showing. But it is the right size and displays in the center as I need it to.

To get the dialog to show in the centre of your frame, you need to supply the parent as the first parameter in the constructor, eg:

JFrame myFrame = new JFrame("Frame title");

JDialog myDialog = new JDialog(myFrame, "Title");

To resize it, just use:

myDialog.setSize(new Dimension(200, 100));  //  or whatever size you need.

The setSize() should replace the pack() method ;-)
