Hi, Reading the API of JOptionPane in the most parameters showInputDialog (see copy below), at the end I read : It is up to the UI to decide how best to represent the selectionValues, but usually a JComboBox, JList, or JTextField will be used. How can I self make a "JOption input pane", where I already have set a value in the inputfield of the pane? Please add codesnippit, Thanks, javabit showInputDialog public static Object showInputDialog(Component parentComponent, Object message, String title, int messageType, Icon icon, Object selectionValues, Object initialSelectionValue)
Prompts the user for input in a blocking dialog where the initial selection, possible selections, and all other options can be specified. The user will able to choose from selectionValues, where null implies the user can input whatever they wish, usually by means of a JTextField. initialSelectionValue is the initial value to prompt the user with. It is up to the UI to decide how best to represent the selectionValues, but usually a JComboBox, JList, or JTextField will be used.
