    Default Error in absurdly simple code

    So this is first post, I'm new to programming in general and am starting with java, using Jrasp as an IDE.

    I was putting together code for my neice as a cool display of my skills lol when I ran into this error. I don't understand what the problem is?

     
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
     
    public class whatthehell
    {
     
      public static void main (String[]args)
      {
     
     
      String name;
     
     
     
      name = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Hey whats your name weirdo!! ");
     
      JOptionPane.showMessageDialogue(null, "hey hey hey" + name);
     
     
       System.exit(0);
     
      }
    }

    The error message I receive is

    whatthehell.java:17: error: cannot find symbol
    JOptionPane.showMessageDialogue(null, "hey hey hey" + name);
    ^
    symbol: method showMessageDialogue(<null>,String)
    location: class JOptionPane
    1 error

    ----jGRASP wedge2: exit code for process is 1.
    ----jGRASP: operation complete.

    Read the API doc for the JOptionPane class and see how to spell the method you are trying to use.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
