I previously asked about a font chooser, and someone gave me one. The problem is now I don't know how to make that class work in my action performed method that runs when my change font button is pressed. I got the FontChanger link is http://examples.oreilly.com/jswing2/code/ch12/FontChooser.java .  I would really appreciate anyone who could help me figure this out.

FontChooser chooser =  FontChooser(your_frame_instance);

now you can call chooser.getNewFont() or chooser.getNewColor() or chooser.getAttributes()

If your action performed is inside anonymous inner class which is part of the JFrame (and lets say your JFrame name is MyJFrame) then you create the FontChooser
FontChooser chooser =  FontChooser(MyJFrame.this);

sorry (missing the new):
FontChooser chooser =  new FontChooser(MyJFrame.this);
