Hi Sherrod,

Having had a look at my last post after a nights sleep I'm not sure it
was very clear...

If you change your script to the following it should work:

import javax.swing as swing
result = swing.JOptionPane.showInputDialog(wC, cmd[8:],"Promptfrom " +
client.serverName, swing.JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE)
