JTextField changes

I have a JTextField and a JButton. The user can either type the text in the text field or he can click the button and select the folder, whose name will be then entered as the text of the text field using setText method. In either one of the two cases I want to set a variable _userSetResultFolder = true.
However, there is also another text field in the panel that will set the result folder text field if it is not set by the user (_userSetResultFolder = false), to the value of this folder + /results, in this case of course I want _userSetResultFolder to remain false.

How can I ensure that even when the user types into the result folder text field rather than using the result folder button, the _userSetResultFolder gets set to true.

Thanks.

Set up a DocumentListener on the JTextField that you want set the variable. Use another DocumentListener (or don't set one) on the JTextField that you do not want to set the variable.
