public class ButtonExample extends JFrame {

   public ButtonExample() {
     // Add controls to JFrame
     Container container = this.getContentPane();
     JButton button = new JButton("Press to Continue");
     container.add(button);
     JTextField txtField = new JTextField();
     container.add(txtField);

    ButtonHandler handler = new ButtonHandler();
    listener.setTextField(txtField);
    button.addActionListener(handler);

    setSize(200, 100);
    setVisible(true);
   } // end of constructor
} // end of class

// put in same source code file
private class ButtonHandler implements ActionListener {
  private JTextField txtField;

 // pass textfield to ActionListener
  public void setTextField(JTextField field) {
      this.txtField = field;
  }

  // handle button press
  public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event) {
     txtfield.addText("You pressed the button.");
  }

} // end of class

There are some variations. Some developers have the class containing the JFrame implement ActionListener, and put the actionPerformed method there. It's also possible to create the ActionListener class as an inner class within the JFrame subclass. This saves having to add a method to pass the TextField reference to the ActionListener.

>> how write java code to print text on a new window / JOptionPane

In the actionPerformed () method, you can use the showMessageDialog () method of JOptionPane, like:

JOptionPane.showMessageDialog ( <Parent-Frame>, <Message>, <TITLE>, JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE ) ; // show an information message - you can use ERROR_MESSAGE, WARNING_MESSAGE, etc
