    Default Java JOptionPane text unreadable

    When I use this code
    import javax.swing.*;
     
    public class Swag {
     
        public static void main ( String[] args) {
            String name = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("What is your name?");
     
            String input = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("How old are you?");
            int age = Integer.parseInt(input);
     
            System.out.print(" Hello, " +name);
            System.out.println("Next year you'll be " +(age+1));
        }
    }
    And run it, it ends up looking like thisH1765.png I'm running windows 8, the latest x64 JDK, no type of custom font or anything that I know of. I've run this through eclipse, CMD, and uninstalled and reinstalled Java. I tried using another example of JOptionPane usage from a site and running it, still looks the same.

    I can't reproduce your problem, but I'm on Linux.

    Do you get 2 option panes displayed one after the other when you click OK/Cancel on the first option pane? If so, does the second option pane have the same problem?

    Also, does the same problem occur if you comment out the second option pane (so that your program will display only 1 option pane)?

    Just speculating, try the following to see if it makes a difference:
    public class Swag {
     
        public static void main(String[] args) {
            SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
     
                @Override
                public void run() {
                    String name = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("What is your name?");
     
                    String input = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("How old are you?");
                    int age = Integer.parseInt(input);
     
                    System.out.print(" Hello, " + name);
                    System.out.println("Next year you'll be " + (age + 1));
                }
     
            });
        }
    }
