    how can i store the text or number displayed on top of a button in a array
    What do you need to store in the array?
    The JComponent class has ClientProperty methods you can use to store information in each button itself.

    all the buttons are layed out in a grid manner.the grid is of 3*3 and there are 9 buttons in total.each button has a number on top of it, for example the top leftmost button has the number 1 on it,followed by number 2 and so on.i want to store that number of the button pressed by the user in an array.

    .i want to store that number of the button pressed by the user in an array.
    You can get the label from the button that was pressed. Look at the API doc for the button class for what method to use.
    Then you can store the number in the array.

    Try the action listener
    Some buttons can get the focus which means you can use the tab and press Enter to get an action event.

    I promise that if you can't tell whether something is correct, neither can we. What does it do? Does it do what you expect?

    If you want more help, you'll have to provide an SSCCE that demonstrates what you're talking about.

    buttonpressed[1+event.getID()]=1;
    This looks like buttonpressed is an array of int.
    Do you know know what the value returned by getID is?
    Read the API doc for the event class to see if it is useful for your program.
