fire event manually

Hi guys, Im trying to skip a window by manually fire a button event that makes the program go to the next window (lets call it next button).

The problem is that I dont know how to fire a button event manually.

I guess that the solution comes calling the "actionPerformed"
function but the problem are the paramenters to pass it.

here is the function interface
-public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ev);-

I hope someone can help me.
This could be very usefull when defining the flow of your program in the debuggin phases.

Thanks in advanced.

  • Good question. I wonder how it works internal too.

    But the action methode "actionPerformed" takes an
    ActionEvent. The ActionEvent takes the
    following tree params:
    1. The actual object,
    2. Some identification Id,
    3. Some string which is specifying the actual object or
    the Action.

    In code:

    class MyClass implements ActionListener{
    MyObject obj = new MyObject();
    obj.setActionListener(this); /*this represents MyClass*/
    obj.setName("nils"); /*now fire the action*/
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae){

    class MyObject{
    private ActionListener ae;
    private String name;
    public void setActionListener(ActionListener in_ae){
    ae = in_ae;
    public void setName(String in_name){
    name = in_name;
    ae.actionPerformed(new ActionEvent(this,0,"New name is set."));
    public static void main(String[] args){
    new MyClass();

    Bye, nils

  • Oups. Put the main methode into the MyClass class and remove it from MyObject.
    Just because design purpose.
