You'll have to either call actionPerformed directly or post an event with EventQueue.postEvent(...)

ah ok, no problem that works!!

is there a way of doing this:
the main frame has a tabbed pane - so each tab is a panel.  when a tab is clicked then panelMe becomes visible.
can panelMe listen for an event "when i become visible to the user then do something" ??

Add a ChangeListener and then do that something if it's the right panel selected:
