Class GMouseListenerAdapter

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.awt.event.MouseListener, java.awt.event.MouseMotionListener, java.awt.event.MouseWheelListener, java.util.EventListener

    public class GMouseListenerAdapter
    extends java.awt.event.MouseAdapter
    A mouse listener implementation designed to provide consistent handling of triggers for popups and double-clicking.


    • Popup triggers always supersedes double-click actions.
    • The stage an action triggers (pressed/released/clicked) is platform dependent.
    • Each of the methods mentioned below will be called as appropriate.
    • You can override any of these methods to be called for each trigger.
    • Normally popups are handled by the framework via custom actions. But, for custom widgets it is sometimes simpler to handle your own popups. This class makes that easier
