Hi experts,
I would like to adjust the folling code:

private void print()
{
  int exit = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog
  ( null,"Are you sure you want to print ?","Timeport . . .",JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);

    f(exit==JOptionPane.YES_OPTION)
       {printPage(); }
}

I need it to include either 3 check boxes or those round ones (I believe they are called radio buttons) so that the user may choose which pages to print(please I need you to tell me also how to know if a check box has been checked)

I would also like to change the buttons from (yes and no) to (Print and Cancel)

thank you

How much do you know about java?
JOptionPane is flexible in only certain ways.  It is designed mostly for informational and confirmation prompts.  You'll probably want to use a JFrame.

Here's an example of a drop down list under the warningbutton that uses JOptionPane.

The example I referenced you will allow you to use a drop down list for your three items
If you want help with that let me know.


One thing I thought of - I believe with a Frame there is no easy way to keep the window on top, ( user clicks on window behind and it comes to front and your print box disappears) Not sure my java getting a little rusty

If you put this code in your class file after all brackets you can launch a jframe by calling
JFrame callitsomething = new Myjframe();



class Myjframe extends JFrame{
      
      Myjframe() {
            super("Print");
             setSize(150,150);
             setVisible(true);
            setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
            JLabel melab = new JLabel("acksdfadsf");
            JPanel panel = new JPanel();
            JButton melab3 = new JButton("acksdfadsf");
            panel.add(melab);
            panel.add(melab3);
            this.setContentPane(panel);
            
      }
}

This tutorial should get you through rest
