Can you tell me how to get JOptionPane to pop up where I tell it?
I have tried
Frame parentComponent = new Frame();
parentComponent.setBounds(new Rectangle(1, 1, 00, 100));
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(parentComponent, "Some Error Message",
"WindowTitle", JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);
and I also tried JFrame for the parentComponent.
It still pops up in the middle of the screen.
Thank You in Advance for Your Help,
I agree. Here's the link:
