Hi all,

I am using a JTabbedPane and in the changeListener(), I have the code to do some operation if the selected tab name is of a particluar name. But the stateChanged() method is called multiple times for a single selection. Any idea of how to restrict this?

Here is my code -

---------------------------------------------------------------

tabPane.addChangeListener(new ChangeListener(){

public void stateChanged(ChangeEvent arg0) {

String tabName = tabPane.getTitleAt(tabPane.getSelectedIndex());

if (//condition)
{
// do some operation
}

}
----------------------------------------------------------------

Please clarify!

thanks in advance!!

});

Works fine for me.
Is that your real code?

Check this example
for me this works correct I mean one selection = one stateChanged invocation if this doesn't help, provide more sourcecode of your appplication.

yes, this is the code I am using. Since I am using a JoptionPane inside the if condition, and the since the tabbedPane is getting selected automatically by the program after I select it once, the JoptionPane appears multiplt times everytime after I press OK in the JoptionPane.

Any idea what the problem is?

Thanks in advance!!

If it is possible share Your code.
It's hard to work out anything if can't see full source.
I think the bug is somewhere else in Your code.

Hi all,

Yes, its basically because I have the changeListener called inside a for loop which was the cause of this. Now I have changed this and it works perfectly fine.

Thanks for your help!
