I need a standard FIND, FINDNEXT java object (modeless dialog box) that receives user input to search for, match whole word, match case, up/down, findnext and cancel buttons...you know the one that we all use everywhere.
I tried searching google, sun and the like but can't find this very common object. BTW, I am using JBuilder 4 IDE.
thanks in advance,
Peter

Common Dialog Boxes
The find, login, preferences, and progress dialog boxes are common in many applications. These dialog boxes are not supplied by the JFC. The following sections show simple versions of these dialog boxes that are consistent with the Java look and feel. You can adapt the designs for these dialog boxes to suit your needs

I find it funny that JAVA doesn't include one as tight little object. I saw a few samples in my travels but always assumed that there was a "common" object available. I'll use the one in the first link as my starting point. Here is some stuff a friend found for me:

Sample code for above example. http://java.sun.com/products/jlf/ed2/samcode/findia.html

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
