Hello all...
I want to place a popup menu when i right click the button.
Is it possible ? I tried with the below code but it is not showing any
button & is only showing a popup menu at the position i set in Show()
& when i click on the choices the button appears.
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
public class ACDemo extends Frame implements ActionListener
{
Button b;
TextArea t;
ACDemo()
{
setLayout(new FlowLayout());
b = new Button("Click");
add(b);
b.addActionListener(this);
TextField t = new TextField(10);
add(t);
PopupMenu p = new PopupMenu();
MenuItem m1 = new MenuItem("Hot");
MenuItem m2 = new MenuItem("Cold");
MenuItem m3 = new MenuItem("Spicy");
p.add(m1);
p.add(m2);
p.add(m3);
b.add(p);
setVisible(true);
p.show(this,52,52);
}
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
if (e.getSource()==b)
{
System.exit(0);
}
}
public static void main(String args[])
{
ACDemo f = new ACDemo();
f.setBounds(100,100,400,400);
}
}
Can someone tell me where i m wrong ?
Thanks.

As I just tested by code, if you
addMouseListener to button b, then the popupmenu will appear (sure, you need event handler also)
Don't know if have other simple method to let it work.

Just to confirm, do we have to study PopupMenu for SCJP ?
Thanks in advance.

Hi Jini,
It's part of the AWT so you may get a question that requires knowledge of where and how it can be used.
Hope that helps.
