    Default suggestions required on Jlabel(ImageIcon) and Jbutton for mouselistener

    well my programme near to end . i am using Jlabels with ImageIcon . but some time when i clicked on outside of jlabel/ImageIcon the mouse event generated un-wantedly on some other label. i heared that ImageIcon in Jlabels are not good for mouselistener because even in my programme sometime events wrongly generate when i clicked on one JLabel ImageIcon which disabled for mouselistener then an active mouselistener jlabel catch that event and activated.

    Please suggest me should i drop the idea for using JLabel with ImageIcon. and use JButtons Instead.

    Your Suggestions and comments will guide me
    Thanks

    Hello.
    I guess JLabel works very well with ImageIcon.
    Can you post your code? Let me see the look-and-feel.

    Well Syed Bhai Thanks for your suggestions but Conceptually, a label is not intended to be interactive (except tooltips or mouseover effects).
    Next I Am thinking of My users. What about those who prefer to use keyboard?
    Buttons have a standard (well implemented) behaviour for different mouse events? (Try to click on it and drag the mouse out, for instance)
    Thus I am going with JButton and ActionListener.

    Hello.
    I did not talk of interaction with JLabels. JLabels are passive components which means users will never interact with them.
    Still, if we want to display an image using JLabel I said its possible with ImageIcon.

    Syed.
