Hi everyone,
I seem to be having trouble displaying a message dialog.My application requires user input to a textField in a specific format(say hh-mm-ss).And whenever user enters invalid i/p,a dialog should appear saying "this is the wrong format.Please enter in the format hh-mm-ss" and in the dialog there is only one button ok.when pressed the user should be prompted to enter i/p again.

I am using JOptionsPane.showMessageDialog which is showing the dialog,but my application hangs when i click ok.Can someone please help me with the listener for the ok button.
Thanks,
Thejaswini.

You may want to post your code so people may see what is going on.

No listener is needed. This is almost certainly unrelated to showMessageDialog() and is a problem with the code you've written that follows it.

indeed. The way I validate user input is in this way:



Messages.java

this might be one way.

needs testing to ensure the hour range is what you want

Thanks everybody...John, Ken ,Dieter & Michael...now my code is working.
The basic problem seems to be the code following showMessageDialog like you suggested ken.Once again thanks to all of you.
