I have a class that extends JPopupMenu (called extendedPopupMenu). References are passed all over the place so posting code is kind of difficult.

When I do [instance].toString();
the following is generated....

extendedPopupMenu[,0,0,0x0,invalid,layout=javax.swing.plaf.basic.DefaultMenuLayout,
alignmentX=null,alignmentY=null,border=javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalBorders$PopupMenuBorder
@29ce8c,flags=8,maximumSize=,minimumSize=,preferredSize=,desiredLocationX=0,desiredLocationY=0,
label=,lightWeightPopupEnabled=true,margin=,paintBorder=true]

My problem is the menu wont show up. Could someone please tell me if anything here is noticably wrong?

                  private void maybeShowPopup(MouseEvent e) {
                        if (e.isPopupTrigger()) {
//both of these show up, p as above
                              System.out.println(e);
                                        System.out.println(p);
                              p.show(e.getComponent(), e.getX(), e.getY());
                        }
                  }
//called from inner class generated by constructor...

      class PopupListener extends MouseAdapter {
                  extendedPopupMenu pop;
      
                  PopupListener(lpopup p) {
                        pop = p;
              }

              public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e) {
                  maybeShowPopup(e);
              }
              public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent e) {
                  maybeShowPopup(e);

           pop = new extendedPopupMenu();
//from another class. A reference gets passed thru

the constructor where the code above takes pop as a parameter

Heh. Im starting to see why I should be using Class Diagrams
//from within constructor...
            p = pop;   //pop is a reference to the extendedPopupMenu given to the constructor

//where variables are initiated
         extendedPopupMenu p;
