Is there a way to not have either a JFrame or a JDialog close when the X is clicked on the upper right of the window. If the user of my program clicks the X, even if I ask them if they want to close and they say no, the window still closes.

In your JDialog you can do something with the processWindowEvent like this

protected void processWindowEvent(WindowEvent e)


if (e.getID() == e.WINDOW_CLOSING) {

if you want it to close out the window then just do a


when you are done otherwise, just return and your dialog won't close.
