Internal Frames(urgent.....please!)

I have an application that spawns numerous internal frames. I need to detect which internal frame throws an event ans close that specific one.
When I create an instance of the internal frame, I add a vetoableChangeListener to it. Each internal frame is createdd the same exact way and the listener add likewise. How do I know that internal frame1 generated the event or if internal frame6 generated it.

Either you need a separate listener for each frame, or you need to add the same listener to all the frames and then have it ask the event what its source was:

I would personally create a separate listener for each frame.
