Hi,
Can I display Dialog without extending class as Frame or Window?
If yes, how? Would you please explain me by simple example?
Thanks in advance,
angela

This should really be in the Swing/JFC/AWT forum, so I'm transferring it...

A java.awt.Dialog is already an extension of java.awt.Window, so you can't change that. I suppose it might be possible to create a Dialog-like component that des not extend Window, but why? What's wrong with using a Window?

Thank Jim,
Here is my code:
import java.applet.Applet;
import java.awt.*;
public class myDialog extends Frame
{
Dialog md ;
myDialog()
{
md = new Dialog(this, "Error Message Window");
Panel p = new Panel();
Label l = new Label("No Server Response");
p.add(l);
md.add("Center" ,p);
Panel p2 = new Panel();
p2.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
Button ok = new Button("Retry");
Button cancel = new Button("Cancel");
p2.add(ok);
p2.add(cancel);
md.add("South",p2);

}
public static void main(String args[])
{
myDialog theApp = new myDialog();
theApp.show();
}
}
I want to display dialog box without extending class to Frame?
Please let me know how can I do it?
THanks again
angela

Here is a dialog class I made as a practice exercise:

An application that would *use* this mcDialog class, would need to extend Frame. (typically, dialogs require a frame as a parent, however I've seen programs send null)
The comment about VB was for me, since I come from a VB Background. In fact, now that I take a second look, the comment is wrong. dispose() is like Me.hide, and not at all like Unload Me.
