Error: Does not override abstract method actionPerformed

I keep getting the following error:


ParkingMeterGUI2.java:13: proj3.ParkingMeterGUI2 is not abstract and does not override abstract method actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent) in java.awt.event.ActionListener
class ParkingMeterGUI2 extends JPanel implements ActionListener
^


Can someone kindly point me in the right direction?


class ParkingMeterGUI2 extends JPanel implements ActionListener
{    
   private JFrame parkingMeterWindow;
   private static final int WINDOW_WIDTH = 995;
     private static final int WINDOW_HEIGHT = 1000;
         
   private String title;
   private String anotherTitle;
     
   private JLabel label;
     
   private JButton quarterButton = new JButton( "25" );
   private JButton dimeButton = new JButton( "10" );
   private JButton nickelButton = new JButton( "5" );
   private JButton pennyButton = new JButton( "1" );
     
   //-------------------------------------------------------------
   public ParkingMeterGUI2( String windowName, int width, int height )
   {
      initialize( );
  }
     
   //-------------------------------------------------------------
   public void initialize( )
   {    
      // create the frame
      //window = new JFrame( windowName );
      parkingMeterWindow = new JFrame( "Parking Meter" );
      parkingMeterWindow.setDefaultCloseOperation( JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE );
      parkingMeterWindow.setBackground( Color.WHITE );
      parkingMeterWindow.getContentPane( ).add( this );
      parkingMeterWindow.setSize( WINDOW_WIDTH, WINDOW_HEIGHT );
         
      // create label (label replaces drawString)
      label = new JLabel( title, SwingConstants.CENTER );
      add( label );
         
      setLayout( new BorderLayout( ) );
      add( new JLabel( anotherTitle, SwingConstants.CENTER ), BorderLayout.NORTH );
     
      /*
      The most common JPanel constructor has no parameters.
      This creates a panel with the default layout (FlowLayout).
      Call setLayout() to change the layout.
     
      JPanel p = new JPanel();
      p.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
      You can optionally specify the layout in the JPanel constructor call.
      JPanel p = new JPanel(new FlowLayout());
      */
     
     
      JPanel buttonPanel = new JPanel( );
      add( buttonPanel, BorderLayout.NORTH );
         
         
      //quarterButton.addActionListener( this );
      quarterButton.addActionListener( new ActionListener( )
      {
         public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent e )
         {
            //numberOfQuarters++;  
            setBackground( Color.GREEN );    
         }
      } );
     
      //dimeButton.addActionListener( this );
      dimeButton.addActionListener( new ActionListener( )
      {
         public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent e )
         {
            //numberOfDimes++;
            this.setBackground( Color.BLUE );  
               
         }
      } );
     
      //nickelButton.addActionListener( this );
      nickelButton.addActionListener( new ActionListener( )
      {
         public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent e )
         {
           //numberOfNickels++;    
            this.setBackground( Color.RED );
         }
      } );
     
      //pennyButton.addActionListener( this );
      pennyButton.addActionListener( new ActionListener( )
      {
         public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent e )
         {
            //numberOfPennies++;
            this.setBackground( Color.YELLOW );
         }
      } );

You either need to implement the method specified in ActionLister or remove it like ksivananth said. Looking at the code, I think initially you wanted to use this class as an action listener:
 //quarterButton.addActionListener( this );
      quarterButton.addActionListener( new ActionListener( )
      {
         public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent e )
         {
            //numberOfQuarters++;  
            setBackground( Color.GREEN );    
         }
      } );

But that line is commented out so it's safe to remove the "implements ActionListener" part, just as suggested above.

>>class ParkingMeterGUI2 extends JPanel implements ActionListener

replace the above with

class ParkingMeterGUI2 extends JPanel

Or else if you don't want the anonymous inner class, then you can add an actionPerformed () method with the same code, to your ParkingMeterGUI2 class and un-comment the statement: >> //quarterButton.addActionListener( this );
(remove the current anonymous action listener too, in that case)
