I have a mouseListener which i want to attatch to more than one object. And i want a differant response depending on what object i click on.

I am aware that i could just write a new listener for each of the objects but that would be very bad practice.

How can i get java to tell me what object i have clicked on?


class MousePressListener implements MouseListener
{
public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent event)
{

System.out.println(" detected on "
+ event.getSource().getClass().getName());


scrollRight(); }
public void mousePressed(MouseEvent event){}
public void mouseMoved(MouseEvent event) {}
public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent event) {}
public void mouseEntered(MouseEvent event) {}
public void mouseExited(MouseEvent event) {}
}
This will tell me Javax.Swing.JLabel
for example, but it wont distinguish between th differant JLabels/JButtons i am clicking on. How can i return the path or text associated with the object??
