    Default Connecting Two Different ActionListeners

    I have one Actionlistener that can change my text to Italic... And I have one action listener that can change my text to bold.. But I just wrote up these IF ELSE statements and they do NOT work... How can I get the textarea to know that BOTH check boxes have been selected and not just one?


    		jcBold.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    				if(jcBold.isSelected()){
    				Font font1 = new Font("Serif", Font.BOLD, 14);
    				jtaOutput.setFont(font1);
    				}else if (jcBold.isSelected() && jcItalic.isSelected()){
     
    				Font font2 = new Font("Serif", Font.BOLD + Font.ITALIC, 14);
    				jtaOutput.setFont(font2);
    				}else {
    					Font font1 = new Font("Times Roman", Font.PLAIN, 12);
    					jtaOutput.setFont(font1);
     
    				}
    			}
    		});
    		panel_1.add(jcBold);
     
    		jcItalic = new JCheckBox("Italic");
    		jcItalic.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
    				if(jcItalic.isSelected()){
    				Font font1 = new Font("Serif", Font.ITALIC, 14);
    				jtaOutput.setFont(font1);
    				}else if (jcBold.isSelected() && jcItalic.isSelected()){
    				System.out.println("1");
    				Font font2 = new Font("Serif", Font.BOLD + Font.ITALIC, 14);
    				jtaOutput.setFont(font2);
    				}else {
    					Font font1 = new Font("Times Roman", Font.PLAIN, 12);
    					jtaOutput.setFont(font1);
     
    				}
    			}
    		});

    Default Re: Connecting Two Different ActionListeners

    Let both actionListeners call one method that determines the current selection of the checkboxes and sets the new font.
    int state = Font.PLAIN;
    if(jcItalic.isSelected()){
      state += Font.ITALIC;
    }
    if(jcBold.isSelected()){
      state += Font.BOLD;
    }
    Font font = new Font("Serif", state, size);
