JTextComponent has method setEditable(boolean). Whichever text control you choose, it probably extends JTextComponent so it has that method. This allows you to disallow editing.

What remains is add the right listener to the component to show the message. Although I wouldn't even bother; once the component is disabled users can't even try to type in it anymore.

Max,
As I understand it, you wish to create a text field that accepts only digits.
If so, I suggest you consider JFormattedTextField.

Good Luck,
Avi.
