I have a class called "MyDialog" which is basically a JPanel with 2 textfields and a checkbox in a JFrame

I want to use "JOptionPane.showOptionDialog(Component parentComponent, Object message, String title, int optionType, int messageType, Icon icon, Object[] options, Object initialValue)" in the my main class and pass an instance of "MyDialog" as "Object message" but I have ended really confused and frustrated. Anyone who can bail me out?
