    Default "DO EVENTS" while looping

    Im sure some of you are familiar with the "DO EVENTS" code in visual basic that allows the program to perform other tasks while in a loop. I am looking for the equivalent in java. Is there a way to tell java to continue doing its thing, allow user input and what not while in a loop.

    way to tell java to continue doing its thing, allow user input and what not while in a loop.
    Are you talking about using threads to allow multiple streams of execution to proceed in parallel?
    Put the stuff you want "java to do" in its own thread and let it run in the background leaving the GUI free to handle user input.
