    Default Event handling

    can anyone explain how these blocks of code works?
    this code is working code. but i cant understand how the event handling is implemented in this code
    forwardButton is an instance of JButton and the main container class doesnt implement ActionListerner interface

    forwardButton.addActionListener(new ActionListener(){
    public void actionPerformed( ActionEvent event )
    {
    URL url= webBrowserPane.forward();
    urlTextField.setText(url.toString());
    }
    });

    Welcome to the Forum! Please read this topic to learn how to post code correctly and other useful tips for newcomers.

    The code includes an "anonymous inner class" to perform the event handling which you should find more about with a web search.
