Ok I know this is an easy question. But....

I have a JButton. All I want to do is when the mouse is on top of the button, I want to popup a dialogBox, and when the mouse is outside the button, the dialogbox must be disposed. What is the event I have to trip for this?.

mouseEntered and mouseExited () events are the ones you need to use. Add a MouseListener to your button.

button.addMouseListener ( new MouseAdapter () {
  public void mouseEntered ( MouseEvent me )
  {
    // do your stuff
  }
  public void mouseExited ( MouseEvent me )
  {
    // do your stuff
  }
} ) ;
