Hi all,
I was wondering is it possible for there to be 2 input boxes in one JOptionPane?

This Displays 1 input box but can I have two?
e.g.

Is it possible?
Thanks loads in advance
Thanks Joe Kane

Sure, check out this method.

Make your Object[] JTextField objects.

Thanks for that, but I am a noob to Java and do not fully understand your code,
where do I put the "inputDialog" etc...

If you are a noob, check out the Java Tutorial. Tons of great examples, like this section on How to Make Dialogs

Sorry buddy, I am wrong...
The JavaDocs suggest (at least to me) that you can pass whatever Component type you want and it will lay it out for you. From the JavaDocs: " It is up to the UI to decide how best to represent the selectionValues, but usually a JComboBox, JList, or JTextField will be used." However when I tried the sample code below, you get a combo box instead of 2 text fields. I would suggest using a JDialog instead and creating your own dialog from scratch. This method would not have worked anyway, because you probably want to have a label next to each edit field, and there is no way to do that here. Again, sorry for being misleading. Hope this helps!

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
