Separating code

Hello
I want to separate my code handling my JFrame+components from the code handling all the events for the application+"underlying" code. So if a button in the mainwindow is pressed all the event handling is processed in another .class file, in order to make the code more easy to overlook.
I.e., can I create an ActionListener in a 2nd class-file and then add that listener to the button i the 1st main class-file?...calling the listener from a component in another class?

Thanks in advance

Sure you can do pretty much what your talking about. I'm doing the same sort of concept but I'm only using a KeyListener. What I did was I made a new class which has a sole purpose of handling keyboard input, in your case you would be handling other input related to the ActionListener interface.


public class ActionHandler implements ActionListener
{
    // fill this class with the methods that must
    // overided in order to handle the action events
}


Now in a separate class somewhere mostlikely in the constructor you can do the following.

...
ActionHandler myActionHandler = new ActionHandler();

JButton myButton = new JButton();
myButton.addActionListener(myActionHandler);
...

Then add the JButton myButton to the contentPane of whatever container object your using (JFrame, JApplet, JDialog,...).

Good luck, I hope this works for you.
