    Default JButton not being recognized

    Hello,

    I am having a problem with some code I am making. I am trying to make a game. Just started a few weeks back. Well, I have three JButtons, but for some reason one is throwing a error when I try to compile it. Here is the code below:

     
    JButton Hack=new JButton("Hack");
    Hack.addActionListener=(new ActionListener(){
          public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
             System.out.println("Hello");
     
         }
     
     
      });

    .addActionListener=
    addActionListener is a method, not a variable. Leave out the = that is trying to assign .addActionListener a value.
