I want to get your advice and help in setting up this class and another question regarding this class.

This class is a basic class I have been using over again in different ways, to get the basics the the program functioning. This class will be used to set a timing cycle for the workouts. I need to modify a couple areas here.

I will not need to remove (timecyclesArrayList.remove(index); // removal of timing.wav) any longer I will just need to add to the arraylist.

The color change needs to stay.

If the for loop can be changed to start at 2 and end at 12 with the set text as well and any other changes fine tuning that needs to be done. I will then be able to reuse this class over again with only slight changes.


Thanks for the support.

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)

          JColoredButton b = (JColoredButton)e.getSource();
         
          int index = timecyclesArrayList.indexOf(b) ;

          if (index > -1)
          {
               timecyclesArrayList.remove(index); // removal of button
               timecyclesArrayList.remove(index); // removal of timing.wav

                b.setDefaultColor();
          }
          else
          {
               timecyclesArrayList.add(b);
               timecyclesArrayList.add("timing.wav");
 
                b.setPressedColor();
          }

actually u don't need that setText() call:

            for (int i=2; i<13; i++)
            {
               JButton b = new JColoredButton((i+1) "seconds", Color.green, Color.black);
               b.setPreferredSize( new Dimension( 40, 20 ) );
               buttons.put("b"+(i+1), b);
               b.addActionListener(this);
               gridPanel.add(b);
            }

This change will work what is this for  (System.out.println(timecyclesArrayList);)

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
     {
                               
          JColoredButton b = (JColoredButton)e.getSource();
         
          int index = timecyclesArrayList.indexOf(b) ;
          timecyclesArrayList.add(b);
          b.setPressedColor();
          System.out.println(timecyclesArrayList);
    }

that just prints the contents of the list to standard output, doubt it is necessary.

>  int index = timecyclesArrayList.indexOf(b) ;
