using package javax.swing, how could I get a total of 3 input dialogs in the same window? For example, if I need to ask for feet and inches so that the input dialogs are along the same line, and i need to ask a weight value, so I would need 3 input dialogs altogether. I will be using JOption.pane.InputDialog of course. could someone help?

How about something like this (almost straight out of a book):

You really need to spend some time working through a Swing tutorial. Sun's Swing Fundamentals comes in two parts: Part I and Part II You may also find the AWT Tutorial useful as a foundation. After a quick scan I'm not sure that JOptionPane is covered; perhaps you should Google. [Edit: Sun's Swing Tutorial is more complete and up-to-date.]

You want an input box with multiple inputs?

If so, here's something to play around with (it's really rough - demo purposes only)

Did I mention this was rough?
I agree. Here's the link:
