Hi all, first of all nice forum. I have a task that i need to perform. I need to create and array which will store medicine when entered in by a user. the code i have so far is:

import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

public class ArrayDemo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
String[] anArray; // declare an array of integers

anArray = new String[10]; // create an array of integers

// assign a value to each array element and print
for (int i=0; i<anArray.length; i++) {
anArray[i] = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Please enter the medicine"); // setting the element number i
System.out.print(anArray[i] + " "); // showing it
}
System.out.println();
}
}

BUT i need to change it so that when a user enters the medicine a YES_NO_CANCEL_OPTION window appears. i have been playin around wit the code but because i suck at java i jus cant get it. can someone please solve this or advise me please. thanks.

You may need to use the JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog method as well as the JOptionPane.showInputDialog method, to get the button set up you require. Check the JOptionPane API entry for your options:

Sorry Jody, I didn't see your response until after I posted.

No harm done, at least we were both on the same train of thought, Steve.
