You can call consume() on the event for a localised treatment, but you may want to disable that sort of event before it is even generated - it depends on what you want to do.

To disable all AWT events (which is a bad idea, since RepaintEvents are kind of needed (to *see* components).. you can create your own event queue like this:

public class EventQueueOverrider extends java.awt.EventQueue{
   static{
        Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getSystemEventQueue().push(new EventQueueOverrider());
   }
 
   public void dispatchEvent(AWTEvent event){
      System.out.println("Event caught.. ignoring");
   }

}

if you do that, then all your events will be ignored. You can parse out the events that you really want to stop, like MouseEvents or something, then let the rest pass through to the queue with a call to super.dispatchEvent().

Do some reading on event types and how they're executed first though, since the example I showed you will pull up an empty frame (no paint events get passed...)

Cheers,
Kylar
