how to create multible choices

Hello everyone out there, hope all is going well with you!

Is there a way to get a radio button,  or checkbox to be able to react like this. Example  5 checkboxs named 1-5 the actioncommand is set to be an audiofile. the user is creating a pattern of choices. 1,2,3,1,2,1,3,5,4,5,3,4,3,1,2 etc the radiobutton or checkbox will only have to be pressed once for each action to happen. Example button #1 is pressed and the audiofile goes into an arraylist #2 is pressed and the audiofile goes into an arraylist #1 is pressed again and the audiofile goes into an arraylist #2 is pressed again and the audiofile goes into an arraylist etc.

Sounds like they should be just buttons instead of checkboxes or radio buttons.
You just need to use an ActioListener to achoieve that behaviour and everytie it gets invoked add the audio to list.

Ok, how would a button be made about the size of a checkbox, there is a space limitation that is why I asked about radio buttons or checkboxs!

You could technically specify the layout like grid or card layout to fit or fill the required size of the buttons.

Hope that helps . . .
