Integrating menuItem and JButton

My question is that is there anyway to fire action object when menuItem's state is changed?
The menuItem and toolbar button for that action perform same task so they must represent the same state like both disabled or enabled.

Hi
I'm not sure I understand your question very well. In the code below the actionPerformed method, and methods in general, do not hold state. The class that the method is in can hold state. And yes, you can certainly arrange for your JCheckBoxMenuItem to fire events.
Maybe you can use this example app to clarify what you want.
