Handling JFrame Events : JFrame Window « Swing « Java Tutorial

The JFrame class supports the registration of eleven different listeners:

  1. ComponentListener: To find out when the frame moves or is resized.
  2. ContainerListener: Normally not added to a JFrame because you add components to the content pane of its JRootPane.
  3. FocusListener: To find out when the frame gets or loses input focus.
  4. HierarchyBoundsListener: To find out when the frame moves or is resized.
  5. HierarchyListener: To find out when the frame is shown or hidden.
  6. InputMethodListener: To work with input methods for internationalization.
  7. MouseListener and MouseMotionListener: To listen for mouse and mouse motion events.
  8. PropertyChangeListener: To listen for changes to bound properties.
  9. WindowListener: To find out when a window is iconified, deiconified, closing, closed and so on.
  10. KeyListener: Normally not added to a JFrame. Instead, you register a keyboard action for its content pane, like this:
JPanel content = (JPanel)frame.getContentPane();
      KeyStroke stroke = KeyStroke.getKeyStroke(KeyEvent.VK_ESCAPE, 0);
      content.registerKeyboardAction(actionListener, stroke, JComponent.WHEN_IN_FOCUSED_WINDOW);
