Hi I have a bean inside an applet. The bean has the following pattern. Bean=> JScrollpane=> JTable and 1 update button and 1 refresh button. The applet too has an update btn and a refresh button and a JLabel which displays messages saying which of the buttons i.e whether the button in the bean are pressed or the buttons in the applet are pressed. I'm able to display a msg. when I press the buttons inside the applet, but How do set callbacks for the buttons in the bean to the label in the applet when I press them. I hope the qn. is clear enough.
