I'm trying to generate an event and dispatch it to a component.  However, the only way I can find to do this is to use Component.deliverEvent() or Component.postEvent().  The problem with these functions is that they call Component.HandleEvent() directly.  Instead, I want to queue the event behind any other events currently waiting to be handled by the receivng component.  Is this possible and how do I queue and event?

I'm not actualy sure if it will help, but there is some excellent coverage on events at:

The info on these pages might give you some insight on how to solve your problem.

As an aside, since events can subcalsed, Have you conided writing your own dispatch table?

Use a statement similar to the following, e.g. to post a
MouseEvent:

    Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getSystemEventQueue().postEvent(
      new MouseEvent(myCustomComp,MouseEvent.MOUSE_CLICKED,
                     0,0,-1,-1,2,false));
