No event is fired after clicking menuitem

I used netbeans to create my application ..my application contains a frame 'MainPage' with a menu bar.It has menu 'Records' .. 'Records' contain 'Order' as menu item ...
i applied action event on Order(menuitem) to open an internal frame with name Order..
I know that JInternal frame has to be placed on a Desktop pane so i have written a code for that but when i click on menu item(Order) the Order JInternal Frame doesnt appear..
Attaching my code below ..pls go through it and help me solve the issue..
mainpage.txt
Order.txt

Don't know about InternalFrame - that would be your next probalem
As of now your actionListener simplye does not work
(jaust add System.out.println("ttt2");
as fisrt line in actionPerforemd - and you will not see it printed before any JInternalFrame


  orderMenuItem.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
            public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
                System.out.println("ttt2");
                orderMenuItemActionPerformed(evt);
            }
        });

Open in new window


The reason for taht is that you orderMenuItem is declared as JMenu, not JMenuItem
ok at the bottom of your main:
 private javax.swing.JDesktopPane jDesktopPane1;
    private javax.swing.JMenuBar jMenuBar1;
    private javax.swing.JMenu orderMenuItem;// wrong - should be JMenuItem type, not JMenu
    private javax.swing.JMenu recordsMenu;
    private javax.swing.JMenu reportsMenu;
    // End of variables declaration

Open in new window


Change that type to JMenuItem and you'll see that
it will print tttt2 - listener will be working
