I have a command:

   int ret = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(this, "Each neural network will have over " + NeuralNet.warningSize() + " connections.\n"
                                                        + "Would you like to continue?", "Confirm Network Size", JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
                                                       
            if (ret == JOptionPane.NO_OPTION) return null;
       
which is run in a seperate thread.  I cannot click on the yes or no options, although I can click on the X or hit enter and tab and it works properly.  Why does the mouse not work on the buttons?

try using EventQueue.invokeLater() to run the dialog on the event dispatch thread.

If objects says it then thats the answer ;)  you could tie in other mouse listeners to the buttons but they should be tied into the event dispatch thread not your own thread as the man himself has said above, I am not arguing with the man OBJ live on..........

Good luck to you!

>> which is run in a seperate thread.

Could you show the full-code where you do this?

I think that you're unknowingly displaying the same JOptionPane again on click of the Yes or No buttons.

jjacksn, you should be a little more interactive with experts who try to help you on your page, and at least answer a few questions if they ask them in the process. Anyway, the answer you accepted seems to be right :)
