    Default passing string into method

    hiya,

    briefly what i want to do is pass a string into a method and use a variable holding the string in place of the string itself.

    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
    	{
    		if(e.getSource() == orange)
    		{
    			changeColor("orange");
    		}
     
    public String  changeColor(String text)
    	{
    		text.setBackground(Color.orange);
    		return color;
    	}

    text.setBackground(Color.orange);
    return color;
    }
    Make a constructor in the class where you want to recieve the string and make it parametrized and then throw your string from the class and you can easily recieve that in your other form.
    Hope it will work.
