    Default JOptionPane Question.

    Is it possible to make it so that when the popup box comes up I will only be able to click on the box? For example, I would be browsing the internet while the program is running and then the box pops up and I am forced to answer the question before I can click on anything else. If it is possible, how do I do it?

    Default Re: JOptionPane Question.

    Are you asking if a Java program can be used to completely take control of the host OS, essentially locking up the computer until the user responds to a dialog box? If that's your question, I believe the answer is no.
