use the JOptionPane class

Re: How to take input by user using jDialogue and use that input 80 80

If the data you want is contained in varaibles in the dialog box class, you need to add methods to that class that you can call to get the data.

Can you post the code you are having problems with.

thats whatn i want -- The Code ---
I dont know what to code for getting user input through dialogue box when a button is pressed.

Can you please Help with the code.

Re: How to take input by user using jDialogue and use that input 80 80

If you only need to get a single value use a JOptionPane. If you need a more complicated then use the JDialog class.
see the tutorial for samples:

Okay here is the code for the actionPerformed event of the get employee detail button

 private void search_empDetails_by_empId(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {

      try {
     String empId = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter Employee ID :");

    Statement stmt=con.createStatement();
    String sql1 = "Select * from emp where emp_id = '" + (empId) + "'";
    ResultSet rs = stmt.executeQuery(sql1);

    while (rs.next())
        String empid = rs.getString("emp_id");
        String f_name = rs.getString("first_name");
        String l_name = rs.getString("last_name");
        String qual = rs.getString("qualification");
        String dept = rs.getString("department");
        String dob = rs.getString("dob");
        String do_join = rs.getString("dojoin");
        String mobile = rs.getString("mob");
        String electmail = rs.getString("email");
        String ageyr = rs.getString("age");
        String sexmf = rs.getString("sex");
        String addrs = rs.getString("address");

        String proj_handled = rs.getString("project_handled");
        String curr_proj = rs.getString("current_project");
        String exp = rs.getString("experience");
        String skill = rs.getString("skills");

        String train_done = rs.getString("training_done");
        String curr_train = rs.getString("current_training");
        String skill_rmk = rs.getString("skill_remark");

        String sal_block = rs.getString("salary_block");
