Modify code to add actincommands

Hello everyone out I'm back asking for some more help Could this code be modified to be able to add actionCommands in like a for statement, so I don't have to write alot of repetive code. I have an example that was given to me by CEHJ

Example:

for(int i = 0; i < checkboxes.length; i++) {
     checkboxes[i].setActionCommand("kp" + (i + 1) + ".wav");
     levels.add(checkboxes[i]);//go through checkboxs and add them to levels
}

import java.awt.Color;
import java.awt.GridLayout;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;

import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JCheckBox;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JLabel;

public class DefensiveMoves extends JPanel implements ActionListener
{
     JCheckBox check;
     JLabel label;
     JPanel gridPanel;
     ArrayList myArrayList;

     public DefensiveMoves()
     {
          myArrayList = new ArrayList();
          label = new JLabel();
          //Call it like this . . .
          gridPanel = new JPanel();
          gridPanel.setLayout(new GridLayout(0, 3));
          // Setting MY layout...
          setLayout(new BorderLayout());
          add(label, BorderLayout.NORTH);
          add(gridPanel, BorderLayout.CENTER);
          label.setText("         DefensiveMoves");
          label.setForeground(Color.red);
          setBackground(Color.white);
          looprow : for (int row = 0; row < 20; row++)
          {

                    check.addActionListener(this);

               button.setDefaultColor();
          }
          else
          {

               button.setPressedColor();
          }
         
          System.out.println(myArrayList);

Or you could even set it in your JColoredButton constructor.
What string exactly did u want to set it to?

Drop_of_RainAuthor Commented:
("kp" + (i + 1) + ".wav");

Like what was in the for:

checkboxes[i].setActionCommand("kp" + (i + 1) + ".wav");

> checkboxes[i].setActionCommand("kp" + (i + 1) + ".wav");

You can also use it in your buttons :

for(int i = 0; i < check.length; i++) {
check.setActionCommand("kp" + (i + 1) + ".wav");
}

Or by just declaring it above on your for loop like what objects said.
