Mouse Event on Container

I have a Component placed inside a Container. When I click on the component, is it only the Component that will receive a mouse event - not the Container? If true, how can I tell the Container that it is clicked?

if the component has any mouseListener added (tooltip etc) it will consume the event.
in that case you need to forward it to the container via dispatchEvent(...)
I agree. Here's the link:
