    Question Java Dialog Box HELP

    Hii Friends,I am new to this forum,and can anybody of you tell me how to do this.

    This is it


    First we were given to type the below given code


    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    public class DialogViewer1
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
    String name = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("What is your name?");
    System.out.println(name);
    System.exit(0);
    }
    }

    and that's not the problem.

    now they ask to modify the program to print “Hello, name!” displaying the name that the user typed in a Dialog Box.

    Please explain how to do that,Thanks in advance

    Well let's break this down.

    import javax.swing.JOptionPane; //imports the package for the GUI input
    public class DialogViewer1
    {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
     //Create an new instance of object string
    String name = new String();
     
    //Create a GUI box to ask for the user's input and set it to string name
    name = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null,  "What is your name?",  "Name", JOptionPane.QUESTION_MESSAGE); 
     
     //Print the word Hello on the screen and concat that string with the instance variable name.
    System.out.println("Hello! " + name);
     
    //System.exit(0); This statement ends the code abruptly and isn't necessary for this type of a java program
    }
    }

    this is it.

    1 First, an input dialog box that asks: “What would you like me to do?”
    2 Then a message dialog box that says: “I'm sorry, (your name). I'm afraid I can't do that.”

    Use the code I had given you, as a template for the program you are trying to write.
