    Default Help with swing GUI

    I wrote this program and it works perfectly running in the console. I want to use swing dialog boxes. I replaced all my console outputs with
    JOptionPanes. But I realize I need to find a way to store my iterations as Strings. How would I store each iteration in a String variable. Here
    is my code:

    import java.util.*;
    import javax.swing.*;
     
    public class TelephoneNumber2
    {
    	static Scanner console = new Scanner(System.in);
    	public static void main(String[] args)
    	{
    		String inputStr, lowerCase, preStr, postStr, phrase1;
    		int hyphenIndex, i, j = 0, k, l = 0, h, length, preLength, postLength, num = 0;
    		char character, character2;
     
    		//System.out.println("Please enter the phone number as a phrase(including hyphen): ");
    		JOptionPane jop = new JOptionPane();
     
    		inputStr = jop.showInputDialog("Please enter the phone number as a phrase(including hyphen): ");
     
    		//inputStr = console.next();
    		lowerCase = inputStr.toLowerCase();	
    		hyphenIndex = lowerCase.indexOf('-');
    		length = lowerCase.length();
    		preStr = lowerCase.substring(0, hyphenIndex);
    		postStr = lowerCase.substring(hyphenIndex + 1, length);
    		preLength = preStr.length();
    		postLength = postStr.length();
     
    		//System.out.print("The phone number is: ");
    		phrase1 = "The phone number is: ";
     
    		if(preLength == 3)
    		{
    		i = preLength - 1;
     
    		while(i >= 0)
    		{
    			character = preStr.charAt(j);
    			i--;
    			j++;
     
    			switch(character)
    			{
    				case 'a':

    I don't understand what you meant by "iterations" here? Please explain in more detail.
