How to open warning dialog box in Java?

Hi,
I am working on a GUI and I need to bring a warning dialog box when a certain action happens.

In order to open this warning dialog box, I tried to use this code that I found on a web site but it did not work:

             // Customized MessageDialog with configured buttons
                MessageDialog dialog = new MessageDialog(shell, "My Title", null,
                    "My message", MessageDialog.ERROR, new String[] { "First",
                  "Second", "Third" }, 0);
                dialog.open();

Open in new window


The problem is MessageDialog cannot be resolved to a type and Eclipse does not recommend me to add any missing library.

What am I doing wrong in here? How can I open a warning dialog box?

This is the website that I used is:

Do you need the specially customised buttons? Or are you just after a plain warning message type dialog box?

If you don't need the customised buttons, rather than using the JFace's MessageDialog, have you tried just using a standard SWT MessageBox as demonstrated in the first code example on the page that you linked too?

I don't need any fancy customized buttons but I would like to have a message on the dialog box and a ok button to close it.

So do you think I can still use swt message box?

I can't see why not. As I said, the link that you posted gives a small example of creating/opening this, you would probably just want to change the icon style from ICON_QUESTION to ICON_WARNING if that is what you want (Refer to the javadoc that I linked to above, for all possible values)
