    Default JOption Pane help

    Im creating a quiz game using the JOption panes for my computer programming 1 class but I cant figure out this one detail. This is what I have so far:

    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
     
    public class FinalProject {
     
        public static void main(String[] args) {
        	JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Welcome to my Sports Quiz, on the next window, you will be prompted to continue.");
        	JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(null, 
    			"Play?", "Sports Quiz", JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
    		//int YesNo = 1; 
    		Switch (YesNo); {
    		                case yes : JOptionPane.YES_OPTION: System.out.print("Good"); break;
        		                case no : JOptionPane.NO_OPTION: System.exit(0); break;
    		                default: JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Invalid Response"); break;
    		}
     
        }
     
     
    }


    I want the Yes in the Confirm Dialog to continue to the next JOption Pane, and if they click the no I want it to exit. Once I figure out how to get the confirm dialog to work I can finish the rest easily. I just can't figure this out, can anyone help me?

    You need to get the return value from the showConfirmDialog method:

    int answer = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(null,"Play?","Sports Quiz",JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
     
    Switch(answer)
    {
         case JOptionPane.YES_OPTION:
              // yes stuff
         case JOptionPan.NO_OPTION:
              // no stuff
         default:
              // default stuff
    }

    That'll show the confirm dialog twice. Also, I got lazy and put the comments in for the switch statement. You'll need actual code in there if you want it to do anything useful.

    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
     
    public class FinalProject {
     
        public static void main(String[] args) {
        	JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Welcome to my Sports Quiz, on the next window, you will be prompted to continue.");
    int answer = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(null,"Play?","Sports Quiz",JOptionPane.YES_NO_OPTION);
     
    Switch(answer)
    {
         case JOptionPane.YES_OPTION:
              // yes stuff
         case JOptionPan.NO_OPTION:
              // no stuff
         default:
              // default stuff
    }
    }
    }
