    Default How to implement JCheckBox inside JButton?

    I was trying some solutions, and every of them failed. Until now, I had thought that anything is possible in Java. One of my solution, that don't makes compilation warrning and runs (but checkbox is missing anyway) is:

    jbuttonjcheckbox.jpg

      class myCheckBox extends JCheckBox implements Icon {
          int w = 20;
     
          public myCheckBox() {
            super();
            setSelected(true);
            setFocusPainted(false);
            setOpaque(false);
            setToolTipText(" close route ");
            addItemListener(new ItemListener() {
               public void itemStateChanged(ItemEvent e) {
                  if (e.getStateChange() == ItemEvent.SELECTED) { }
               }
            });
          }
     
          public void paintIcon(Component c, Graphics g, int x, int y) { }
     
          public int getIconWidth() { return w; }
          public int getIconHeight() { return w; }
      }

    then
      myCheckBox CB = new myCheckBox();
      button.setIcon(CB);

    Any tryings of creating own button class with own content manager fails as well. Any ideas to solve this?
