Hi experts,

I need code to right click on a label and get a popupmenu with the option "Edit". If pressed, a text field appears in place of the label and when text is entered and Enter is pressed the text on the label changes to that of the textfield and the label reappears.

thank you

Why not just get the return value of an input message from a JOptionPane?

String newText = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(parentFrame, "Set new text");
if (newText != null && (newText = newText.trim()).length() > 0) {
      label.setText(newText);
}
