Multiple input in JOptionPane.showInputDialog

The Solution to Multiple input in JOptionPane.showInputDialog is

Yes. You know that you can put any Object into the Object parameter of most JOptionPane.showXXX methods, and often that Object happens to be a JPanel.

In your situation, perhaps you could use a JPanel that has several JTextFields in it:

import javax.swing.*;

public class JOptionPaneMultiInput {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      JTextField xField = new JTextField(5);
      JTextField yField = new JTextField(5);

      JPanel myPanel = new JPanel();
      myPanel.add(new JLabel("x:"));
      myPanel.add(Box.createHorizontalStrut(15)); // a spacer
      myPanel.add(new JLabel("y:"));

      int result = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(null, myPanel, 
               "Please Enter X and Y Values", JOptionPane.OK_CANCEL_OPTION);
      if (result == JOptionPane.OK_OPTION) {
         System.out.println("x value: " + xField.getText());
         System.out.println("y value: " + yField.getText());
