Hi I am coding an alarm application.
I use a JButton to set the alarm. I use the same JButton to warn the user about choosing any file other than an "mp3" file for alarm ringer. But the button works only once.
Here is the code


But I want the button to work as many times as user selects a file other than an mp3 file. Can somebody please help me with this

Use .equals() instead of == to compare strings:


See:

Difference between == and .equals

Remember the (==) comparison is object comparison, it checks if the objects on both sides of the == signs are the same.
The .equals() method compares the string value of the string objects, which is what you want to compare.

Can you elaborate on what happens when you click the second time?

Have you tried printing out something at the beginning of actionPerformed to see if it may be getting there?

It's possible that on the second time you click the button, the condition in the if is false.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
