    Question Call a method in all instances of an object

    I'm making buttons for my game, which i am rendering with LWJGL. however, on the main menu there is a whole lot of buttons, an i was wondering if there was a way to make all of those buttons have their "renderButton" method called by only using one call to a superclass.

    Thanks,
    MaximusPrime

    Put references to the buttons in an array and loop through the contents calling the method.

    Damn, I hoped that wasn't going to be the answer.

    Thanks anyway!
