how to change the text of a button once that button is pressed

I have a button called Connect once I press the connect button I want the text of that button to be disconnect. So when the user starts the application it will be connect and once the button is clicked it will be disconnect when the user wants to close the application they will hit disconnect.

Is that possible to do this?


Netbeans is very intuitive and easy to use... try this:


private javax.swing.JButton jButton2;

Construct and set Lsitener

   jButton2 = new javax.swing.JButton();
    jButton2.addActionListener(new java.awt.event.ActionListener() {
        public void actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {

Get Click Action Event

private void jButton2ActionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent evt) {                                         

Hi the below code snippet will work for you

 connectBtn.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {

        public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {


connectBtn is instance of your Button Component
