    Default JOptionPane output assistance

    I am writting a program that asks a user what the year and month are. After the user inputs the information the results needs to be displayed into a global string using JOptionPane GUI. I have been able to succesfully create the dialog boxes for the year and month but ahve been unsucessful with the output of the calendar. what am I missing?

    [code] public class PrintCalendar {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    Scanner input = new Scanner(System.in);

    String EnterYear = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter a year:");
    int year = Integer.parseInt(EnterYear);

    String EnterMonth = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter month in number between 1 and 12:");
    int month = Integer.parseInt(EnterMonth);
    printMonth(year, month);
    }

    public static void printMonth(int year, int month) {
    printMonthTitle(year, month);
    printMonthBody(year, month);
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, month, + year, JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE);

    }


    public static void printMonthTitle(int year, int month) {
    System.out.println(" " + getMonthName(month)
    + " " + year);
    System.out.println("-----------------------------");
    System.out.println(" Sun Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat");
    }
    [code]

    When posting code, please use the highlight tags to preserve formatting. Otherwise your code is pretty hard to read.

    What exactly is the problem? What does the program do that you don't expect? What does it not do that you expect it to?

    I will keep posting in mind moving forward, I was trying to see how to post.

    the problem is to have a user input year and month and produce the results in a GUI format, not text. currently, I have GUI (JOptionPane) inputs but my output is text - the output needs to be GUI also. I did not post the entire code, if needed I will.

    You can check out other posts here and use the quote feature to see how they wrap their code. It's pretty impossible to read unformatted code, so I would edit your post and do that if I were you.

    What line of code does your outputting? What have you done to try to turn it into a GUI?
