import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.plaf.basic.ComboPopup;

public class CustomButton extends JButton
{
public CustomButton(String str)
{
super(str);
init();
}
JButton jb;
public void init()
{
//jp=new JPanel();
new JButton();
this.setBackground(Color.cyan);
this.setForeground(Color.black);
//this.setComponentOrientation(ComponentOrientation.LEFT_TO_RIGHT);
addActionListener(new Action());
/*this.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter(){
public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent evt)
{
if(evt.isPopupTrigger())
popup.show(evt.getComponent(),evt.getX(),evt.getY());
}});*/
//jp.add(jb);
}
public static void main(String ar[])
{
//CustomButton cb=new CustomButton();
JFrame f = new JFrame();
Container c = f.getContentPane();
c.setLayout(new FlowLayout());
c.add(new JLabel("Button :"));
JButton jb = new CustomButton("Example") ;
c.add(jb);
f.setSize(300,400);
f.setVisible(true);
f.show();
}
class Action implements ActionListener, ComboPopup, MouseListener, MouseMotionListener, KeyListener
{
JPopupMenu popup;
protected JButton button;
public Action()
{
popup=new JPopupMenu();
JMenuItem mi1=new JMenuItem("One");
JMenuItem mi2=new JMenuItem("Two");
popup.add(mi1);
popup.add(mi2);
}
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt)
{
System.out.println("Clicked");
//popup.show(evt.getComponent(),evt.getX(),evt.getY());
popup.show(this,27,27);
}

public void show() {
try {
// if setSelectedItem() was called with a valid date, adjust the calendar
//calendar.setTime( dateFormat.parse( comboBox.getSelectedItem().toString() ) );
} catch (Exception e) {}
//updatePopup();
}
public void hide() {
popup.setVisible(false);
}
protected JList list = new JList();
public JList getList() {
return list;
}
public MouseListener getMouseListener() {

}
public boolean isVisible() {
return popup.isVisible();
}
public void uninstallingUI() {
//popup.removePopupMenuListener(this);
}
//
// end ComboPopup method implementations
//======================================
public void mousePressed( MouseEvent e ) {}
public void mouseReleased( MouseEvent e ) {}
// something else registered for MousePressed
public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
/*if ( !SwingUtilities.isLeftMouseButton(e) )
return;*/
/*if ( !comboBox.isEnabled() )
return;
if ( comboBox.isEditable() ) {
//comboBox.getEditor().getEditorComponent().requestFocus();
} else {
//comboBox.requestFocus();
}
//togglePopup();*/
}
protected boolean mouseInside = false;
public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent e) {
mouseInside = true;
}
public void mouseExited(MouseEvent e) {
mouseInside = false;
}
// MouseMotionListener
public void mouseDragged(MouseEvent e) {}
public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent e) {}
