    Question Menu with Images?

    Hi guys. Actually, I'm developing a stupid game in Java, like Space Invaders. I was wondering, how can I create a Menu (for the game, like "Play", "High Scores",etc.) with images?
    For example, if I have an image (the word "Play") and I want that when the user click on the image, the window with the game will open. Hope you have understood my problem. Please answer! Thanks in advance!

    I have netbeans.There you can choose to create a desktop applications.This will allow you to access methods such as an event.When user clicks on play for example this is considered to be an event.However i do not help you more with this :/

    Depends how you make it. You could make a rectangle for each button, then whenever the mouse is pressed you could send the mouse pointer location to all your buttons. In your button you should check if it gets hit. In pseudo code:
    main.java
    ...
    ...
    if leftmousebuttonpressed
       for all buttons
           hit(mouse.x , mouse.y)
    ...
    ..
    button.java
     
    hit(mouse.x, mouse.y){
       new rectangle with mouse x and y size 1
       if mousrect.intersects button rect
          action()
    }
