currently, my menu item has the following:                        

JCheckBoxMenuItem menuItem = new JCheckBoxMenuItem("...");
menuItem.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
                              public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
                                    new mYDialog(....).setVisible(true);
however, on a left-click I would like to toggle the checkbox of the menu item.  I would like to keep all the other actions as normal....left-click opens menu, Enter opens menu etc.
