> Thanks Kishori,

> I had asked in the january forum about how to build the links to a web page in an Applet using a simple Label in jdk 1.1!! I did try your solution. Here are some of my concerns.

> I just want to know why have you used add ( new Button ( "Does nothing" ) ) in the code. Also when I move the mouse I don't get the events for the label but instead I get them when I move the mouse in and out of the frame in which they are painted!! Why so

> I have also put this question in the january forum. In order to recollect please see that forum

> Thanks a lot for your help

Sorry kishori!! Let me rephrase the previous question.
Actauuly when I associate a MouseListener with a Label, I receive the MousePressed, MouseEntered etc. events on the label as well as on the container on which the label is pasted. So it may be basically a question of identifying in these methods which component generated the event. I can use the getComponent() method to get the component type which generated this event. What i want to know is how do i use this method i.e with what do i compare the result of getComponent() result in order to identify the object which generated the event or else is there any other approach to do the above mentioned process!!
