To each button, add an instance the following, e.g

b.setAction(new PasswordFieldAction(digit));
private class PasswordNumberAction extends AbstractAction {
	public PasswordNumberAction(String digit) {
	    super(digit);
	}

	public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
	    passwordField.setText(passwordField.getText() + e.getActionCommand());
	}
    }

sorry a small typo in the above. should of course be


button = new JButton("1");
button.setActionCommand("1");
button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
   public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event) {
      passwordField.setText(passwordField.getText()+event.getActionCommand());
   }
});

Do the same for the other buttons
or use a loop

for (int i=0; i<10; i++) {
   String d = Integer.toString(i);   // convert int to string
   JButton button = new JButton(d);
   button.setActionCommand(d);
   button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
      public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event) {
         passwordField.setText(passwordField.getText()+event.getActionCommand());
      }
   });
   panel.add(button);
}

hi objects

Your code below appears to use a string for the setActionCommand value, should this not be a char

When I reviewed the jPasswordField API it talks about the field being constructed from chars...?


button = new JButton("1");
button.setActionCommand("1");
button.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
   public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event) {
      passwordField.setText(passwordField.getText()+event.getActionCommand());
   }
});

no its a string

yes it uses characters to retrieve the password, so change what I posted to

      passwordField.setText(new String(passwordField.getPassword())+event.getActionCommand());
