This is a code which demonstrates the use of JRadioButton



At line number 35,39 and 43, they write a code
b1.addActionListener(this);
b2.addActionListener(this);
b3.addActionListener(this);

My class itself give the implementation of actionPerformed() method

My Problem with this code is how come we can write addActionListener(this) when addActionListener() takes ActionListener as the argument. Does this code mean My class implements ActionListener
by overrriding actionPerformed method(). How did my class became a ActionListener even though i have not declared my class as such.

Please explain?

Sort of. It becomes an ActionListener by having an actionPerformed method AND by declaring that it implements the ActionListener interface.

Yes, you have - look at line 11.

Yeah, really silly query. Just in hurry I didn't see the code at line 11. Any way thanks a lot. I realized what I did just after I posted the query

Then why didn't you reply to the posting stating you solved the problem, so we don't waste time answering a question that has already been answered. That kind of behaviour will NOT get you help in the future.
