Help! Function returns bad value when inside .addActionListener
posted 15 years ago
This is a piece of code that dynamically creates JButtons (jb) while reading data from a prefs file. The prefs file is opened, and the data objects (ButtonData is a custom class that contains information associated with each button) are read in. For each one (two total, in this test case) a JButton is dynamically created. The problem is that just before jb.addActionListener(), bd.getObjectArray() returns two unique object arrays (as it should), one for each iteration. However, inside the .addActionListener(), bd.getObjectArray() returns the same object array for both iterations! Does anyone know what might be causing this? I have a feeling the solution is simple, but I can't see it.
