Hi there, I'm fairly new to java and i need some help. I have a TextFiled and a Button and i want eh buton to do a different actionPerformed than the TextField. How would I go about doing that? Here was my random try but it didnt work! :(

//Buttons
clear = new Button("Clear");
clear.addActionListener( new ComponentAdapter() {
      public void actionPerformed (ActionEvent ae) {
            //TextArea Clear
            recv.setText("");
      }
});
add(clear, "East");

Should be:

clear.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
      public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
            recv.setText("");
      }
});
