My code is calling and opening a dialog window.  I am wanting to call a method when the user either hits the cancel button or terminates the window using the x button on the top tight corner.

I am not sure if I need to write a method or there is already a method that gets called.  
How would I go about doing this?

To close with the x at corner

you need to implement WindowListener (add implemnets WindowListener in the declaraion of the calss)

and add these methods to your code in your dilaog:
public void windowClosing(WindowEvent evt) {
this.dispose();
}

public void windowOpened(WindowEvent evt){}
public void windowIconified(WindowEvent evt){}
public void windowDeiconified(WindowEvent evt){}
public void windowActivated(WindowEvent evt){}
public void windowDeactivated(WindowEvent evt){}
public void windowClosed(WindowEvent evt){}

Open in new window
