Waiting for GUI input before continuing.

Hi there,

I've got a flow like:

Create GUI and ask user stuff

Thing is is that I need the program to wait until the user has pressed okay or cancel on the GUI before continuing. How can I achieve this? I haven't provided code so far as I don't expect this to be difficult to integrate etc.. Thank you. :)

Most Dialogs are modal or can be so your program will wait for input before continuing. If using Dialog, call setModal

you don't need to do anything to wait as guis are event driven.
So instead what you would do is have a listener that is notified when the ok/cancel are pressed and have that listener initiate the required processinf.
