Can some please tell me hoe to fix the error in this code... i have tried everything.... the code is suppose to do the following
1)It creates a Button with a label on the button.
2)When pressed the label on the button changes to something diffrent.
3)A label at the buttom of the button also appears.
here is the code.. its a very small program...

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
public class ButtonThing implements ActionListener
{
private JPanel jp;
private JButton jb;
private JLabel jl;
private JFrame jf ;
private int presses = 0;

public ButtonThing(String title) {
jf = new JFrame(title);
jp = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
jb = new JButton("Click Me");
jl = new JLabel();
jp.add(jb, BorderLayout.NORTH);
jp.add(jl, BorderLayout.SOUTH);

jf.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter() {
public void windowClosing(WindowEvent we) {
System.exit(0);
}
});
jf.setContentPane(jp);
jf.setSize(250,250);
jf.setVisible(true);

}

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent ae) {
++presses;
jb.setLabel("Thank you for clicking");
jl.setText("Press count: " + presses);
}
public static void main(String args[])
{
// Run program with:
// java ButtonThing
String s = "Hello";
ButtonThing bt = new ButtonThing(s);
}
}

Any help would be grealty appreciated... thanks ..
the main error iam getting is this :
Note: C:\jdk1.3\bin\ButtonThing.java uses or overrides a deprecated API.
Note: Recompile with -deprecation for details.

------------------
Thanks a lot

Apparently you do not register any ActionListenr on your Button. Thus there is no callback performed when pushing the Button. Add the bold line.
public class ButtonThing implements ActionListener
{
...
private JButton jb;

public ButtonThing(String title) {
jb = new JButton("Click Me");
jb.addActionListener(this);
...
}
