    Unhappy actionPerformed not returning a value.

    Hello fellow java enthusiasts,

    I have been stuck on this problem for this past few days.
    I have tried different ways to get my program going but it failed.

    Here it is.

    public void doWrite(){
    		User u = new User();
    		String passconcat= new String(password.getPassword());
    		UserWriter writer = new UserWriter();
    	public JComboBox doDisplayMonth(){
    		Object comboBox [] = {"January","February","March","April","May","June","July","August","September","October","November","December"};
    		final JComboBox month = new JComboBox(comboBox);
    		month.setBounds(86, 287, 97, 23);
    		month.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    			public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent arg0) {
    				User u = new User();
    				u.setMonth((String) month.getSelectedItem());
    		return month;

    That piece of code is trying to write the selected item on a JComboBox containing an array of months.
    I just want the method actionPerformed to return a string value to be declared at the method doWrite().

    Any solutions?
    It will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS. Sorry if my english is not that good.

    Default Re: actionPerformed not returning a value.

    Try using the ItemStateChanged event for the JComboBox, i've used that one before and i know it works. Let me know how that works out for you.
