Sorry: stop()

(cancel() is for java.util.Timer)

you'll need to make your UpdateListener class an inner class of the one that defines updateTimer.

Or you can pass it to your actionlistener subclass as a parameter, and store it in a member variable

not if you make your UpdateListener class an inner class of the one that defines updateTimer.

>> not if you make your UpdateListener class an inner class of the one that defines updateTimer.

and if the UpdateListener class is a static inner class, updateTimer must also be static.
