Java Applet MouseEvents

By | April 22, 2012
A simple event based applet applications is described below
First importing the necessary header files
// Demonstrate the mouse event handlers.
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import java.applet.*;
/*
<applet code=”MouseEvents” width=300 height=100>
</applet>
*/
Next step is to create a class which implements the “MouseListener” and “MouseMotionListenerĀ “
public class MouseEvents extends AppletĀ implements MouseListener,
MouseMotionListener {
String msg = “”;
int mouseX = 0, mouseY = 0; // coordinates of mouse
public void init()
{
addMouseListener(this);
addMouseMotionListener(this);
}
Handle mouse clicked.
public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent me) {
// save coordinates
mouseX = 0;
mouseY = 10;
msg = “Mouse clicked.”;
repaint();
}
Handle mouse entered.
public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent me) {
// save coordinates
mouseX = 0;
mouseY = 10;
msg = “Mouse entered.”;
repaint();
}
Handle mouse exited.
public void mouseExited(MouseEvent me) {
// save coordinates
mouseX = 0;
mouseY = 10;
msg = “Mouse exited.”;
repaint();
}
Handle button pressed.
public void mousePressed(MouseEvent me) {
// save coordinates
mouseX = me.getX();
mouseY = me.getY();
msg = “Down”;
repaint();
}
Handle button released.
public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent me) {
// save coordinates
mouseX = me.getX();
mouseY = me.getY();
msg = “Up”;
repaint();
}
Handle mouse dragged.
public void mouseDragged(MouseEvent me) {
// save coordinates
mouseX = me.getX();
mouseY = me.getY();
msg = “*”;
showStatus(“Dragging mouse at ” + mouseX + “, ” + mouseY);
repaint();
}
Handle mouse moved.
public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent me) {
// show status
showStatus(“Moving mouse at ” + me.getX() + “, ” + me.getY());
}
Display msg in applet window at current X,Y location. This “paint” method is called when JVM execute “repaint()” function . The “paint” method will refresh the screen
public void paint(Graphics g) {
g.drawString(msg, mouseX, mouseY);
}
}
