Hello everyone out there, I have another question.

What is needed in this code.

Is to make this code be able to add the actioncommand of a radio button that will be set to a audiofile. The radio buttons are not created at this time. But that doesn't matter in this example.

Example:  defensiveMovesArrayList.add("timing.wav");
 

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
                               
          JColoredButton button = (JColoredButton)e.getSource();
         
          int index = defensiveMovesArrayList.indexOf(button) ;

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

               button.setDefaultColor();
          }
          else
          {
               defensiveMovesArrayList.add(button);
               defensiveMovesArrayList.add("timing.wav");
 
               button.setPressedColor();
          }
         
         }

if those radio buttons are for your timing buttons then an action listener (or defensiveMovesArrayList) are not required as only a single radio button can be selected.

I know that, bad code example I guess. I do not have a way that the timing audio file is getting into the list.
It needs to be done here because this defensiveMovesArrayList will be used in another section of the program.

defensiveMovesArrayList.add("timing.wav");

As there will only be one selected timing then I don't see a need to add it to the list.

Ok I just need to have it available so it can go into a list at some point. It needs to get returned in some way so it can be accessed at a later time right? I looked to see about returning at the Java website and had no luck. I must of not asked for the right information. Can you help me with this? This is asked in another question.

yes that is correct, you'd just need your timing panel to return the currently selected timing, smething like:

public class TimingPanel extends JPanel
{
   .....

  public String getSelectedTiming()
  {
     ...
  }
}
