Welcome to JavaRanch, Roland!
java.awt.ActionEvent is GUI-related. We've a forum dedicated to such a topic.
I'm moving this thread to the Swing / JFC / AWT forum, where they love to get all messy with this GUI stuff...

I suggest a reading of chapters 15 and 16 of Lynn Andrea Stein's free on-line book, Interactive Programming In Java.
Also, Bradley Kjell, in part 8 of his free on-line Java lessons, Introduction to Computer Science using Java, provides a nice and easy introduction to the subject of GUI programming and event listening and handling. You'll maybe want to spend some time reading chapters 55 through 59+.
Good luck, and don't hesitate to ask more questions around here.
