Hi javamate06

void javax.swing.JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(Component parentComponent, Object message, String title, int messageType, Icon icon) throws HeadlessException

You can change the title and icon of the message window, but not the fong and color. Font and color are part of the Look And Feel that you are using.

this represents the parent window. If you supply a parent, then the showd message will be modal to that parent. If you supply null, that displayed window will not have a parent.
