    Default JOptionPane display on seperate lines

    Hi everyone,
    I am trying to display an output message using JOptionPane. I want to display the message on a number of lines. I have tried numerous ways and can't seem to find a solution. If anyone could give me a simple example or provide a link to where I could find a solution, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Here's an example of what i'm trying to do;

    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;
    public class NewLine
    public static void main(String[] args)
    JOptionPane.showMessgeDialog(null, "hello")/n
    ("my name is: ")/n

    Thanks in advance.

    What happens if you put all of the message you want to display within one pair of "s? I see 3 pairs of "s in your code.
