How to make a large JOptionPane?

Posted by Avin Sinanan on February 04, 2002 at 1:44 PM

hello there is was wondering if anyone out there knows how to make a large JoptionPane.

Whenever I make a JOptionPane and I try to fit a paragraph in it the JOptionPane just gets longer and longer until it is as long as the JFrame and the words that cannot fit into the JOptionPane are not show.

I can create a JOptionPane using:

"Eggs aren't supposed to be green.",
"Inane custom dialog",

But if intstead of "Eggs aren't suppose to be green" I wanted a long paragraph ..say at least 100 words. How do I do this
I tried using the "/n" (next line) after every sentence but it doe snot work.

Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
