event code

Vandalia, OH

#1 Sep 12, 2006
Hello. I'm new to Java and, I'm trying to set up a frame with an Exit Button
that uses an event handler. But, it isn't working - here is the code, am I missing something? It isn't even getting inside the if statement. Any help would be appreciated

JButton bExitButton = new JButton("Exit");

bExitButton.addActionListener( this);

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
Object source = e.getSource();
if (source == bExitButton)
JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog( null,
"Are you sure you want to Exit?", "Alert",
