Hi guys,
How can i get the effect of a message box using Swing. This is for information, Confirmation etc., .
for instance, i would like to display a message " Do you really want to quit the application?" when the user clicks on the 'Exit' button. Depending on ther user response, i either close the window or put him back to the previous state.
Is there any built-in method/class in Swing to get this done. Or do we have to create our own window with buttons and all.
I would appreciate any information in this regard.
