I need to change the panel in BorderLayout.CENTER when the next button in BorderLayout.SOUTH is pressed.  Is there a way to update one panel in a layout using the events?  How do I do it?  

Thanks

please be more specific.

When the action is captured, how do I change the panel?  

For example:

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
    String Label = (String) e.getActionCommand();
   
    if (Label.equals("Next"))
    {

      ***HERE***
    }


Can you give me a code sample of how I would change the panel in the CENTER at that point?


Thanks

The implementation would more or less depend on what you have
in the center. The easiest thing to do is to remove the original
panel and add the new one. If you have an image in the middle,
then you might want to just switch the image without using a
new panel. At any rate, let's assume you have something like:

JPanel centerPane = new JPanel();
JPanel southPane = new Japenl();
JPanel replacementPane = new JPanel();

JPanel mainDisplay = new JPanel();
mainDisplay.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
mainDisplay.add(centerPane, "Center");
mainDisplay.add(southPane, "South");

Then, in your actionPerformed, you can just do:

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
    String Label = (String) e.getActionCommand();
           
    if (Label.equals("Next"))
    {
         // do the replacement
         mainDisplay.remove(centerPane);
         mainDisplay.add(replacementPane, "Center");

         // repaint itself and all subcomponents  
         mainDisplay.repaintAll();
       
           }
