We will add one button to our Application Window and connect it to event listener. Most common type of even listener is the Click event of a button.

We already have one blank window opened and we added Absolute Layout to this window.

Adding button

Undder the components we have one JButton, click that and place it on our Application Window. To the left of our panel there is a section called Properties. We can manage properties options of our components using this panel.

For our window let us change the text written over it.

Adding Events

To our button we will add one event. This mean adding code which will be executed when we click the button.

Select the button on design panel and double click it. This code will be generated.
private void initialize() {
		frame = new JFrame();
		frame.setBounds(100, 100, 450, 300);
		JButton b1 = new JButton("Close window");
		b1.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
				// Our action code here. 
		b1.setBounds(171, 92, 89, 23);
In above code we marked one area to write our code that will be executed once the button is clicked.

Close the window

We will add some code to close the window.
	b1.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
		public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
On click this will close our window.
