Package java.awt.event


package java.awt.event
Provides interfaces and classes for dealing with different types of events fired by AWT components. See the java.awt.AWTEvent class for details on the AWT event model. Events are fired by event sources. An event listener registers with an event source to receive notifications about the events of a particular type. This package defines events and event listeners, as well as event listener adapters, which are convenience classes to make easier the process of writing event listeners.
