    Default Beginner question dealing with a GUI

    Hi guys!
    I need your help.
    I'm pretty new to java, and I copied and compiled a notepad application!
    It was just a basic notepad, I made minor improvements and I've added a new menu, with a new "About" menu item
    Now I'd like that when I click on "About", a window appears, like the following one:
    new-about-window.jpg
    A simple " About " window, where the user can read about the version of the notepad and stuff.

    I setted an empty ActionPerformed, cause I don't know about any graphic component doing this.

    Thanks in advice

    The JOptionPane class might be useful for that.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Or instead just a custom class extending JDialog if JOptionPane does not give you the flexibility you want.
