Someone here said it would be better to use the type of code below, other then ActionCommand:

saveAsMenuItem.addActionListener(new java.awt.event.ActionListener() {
      public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
        saveAsMenuItem_actionPerformed(e);
      }
    });

Could someone give me an example of how this would be used from a menu through to a SaveAs JFileChooser.

as above and your saveAsMenuItem_actionPerformed method would perform the action:

private void saveAsMenuItem_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
   // perform action here
}

private void saveAsMenuItem_actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
  int return = chosser.showSaveDialog(this);
  if (return == JFileChooser.APPROVE_OPTION)

Hi :

Here is my share :


  // Here is your Action Listener . . .

  saveAsMenuItem.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
  public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

  // Call the method save ...
  save();
  }
  });



  // Here is your save method . . .
 
  private void save()
  {
  if (fileName==null) {

  JFileChooser y = new JFileChooser();

  y.setDialogTitle("Save . . .");
  y.setFileSelectionMode(JFileChooser.FILES_ONLY);
  y.setCurrentDirectory(new File("C:/"));

  int result = y.showSaveDialog(null);

  if (result == JFileChooser.CANCEL_OPTION)
  return;

  fileName = y.getSelectedFile();

  if (fileName == null || fileName.getName().equals(""))
  {
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog( this,"Invalid file name . . .",
  "Warning . . .",JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE );
  }
  else
  {
  try
  {

      // Do your thing here . . .  

  }
  pw.close();
  }
  catch (Exception e)
  {
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(this,"Error saving file . . .",
  "Warning . . .", JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);
  }  
  }

Hope that helps . . .

I made some changes, here you go :

Dont forget to import :
import java.io.*;


  // Here is your Action Listener . . .

  saveAsMenuItem.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
  public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {

  // Call the method save ...
  save();
  }
  });


  // Here is your save method . . .
 
  private void save()
  {
  if (fileName==null) {

  JFileChooser y = new JFileChooser();

  y.setDialogTitle("Save . . .");
  y.setFileSelectionMode(JFileChooser.FILES_ONLY);
  y.setCurrentDirectory(new File("C:/"));

  int result = y.showSaveDialog(null);

  if (result == JFileChooser.CANCEL_OPTION)
  return;

  File fileName = y.getSelectedFile();

  if (fileName == null || fileName.getName().equals(""))
  {
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog( this,"Invalid file name . . .",
  "Warning . . .",JOptionPane.WARNING_MESSAGE );
  }
  else
  {
  try
  {

      // Do your thing here . . .  

  }
  pw.close();
  }
  catch (Exception e)
  {
  JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(this,"Error saving file . . .",
  "Warning . . .", JOptionPane.ERROR_MESSAGE);
  }  
  }
  }

Hope that helps . . .

I have an accessory named AudioAccessory to add to the file chooser, how would that be done here, would it just be added at:

y.setDialogTitle("Save . . .");
AudioAccessory aa = new AudioAccessory();
y.setAccessory(aa);
y.setFileSelectionMode(JFileChooser.FILES_ONLY);
y.setCurrentDirectory(new File("C:/"));

you would only need to do that initialisation of the chooser once though, not every time you wanted to use it.
