     Packed with OVER 25 FULLY COMMENTED CODE EXAMPLES this tutorial teaches you everything from how to make a button to advanced event handling. It assumes NO PREVIOUS JAVA KNOWLEDGE! I include a screenshot of all the programs so you know what it should look like. It's divided into two sections - The first to teach you everything about the objects such as buttons, labels, and text fields. The second to teach you how to handle all the events the objects make. In the first part, you will learn all about: Buttons, Labels, Text Fields, Text Areas, Check Boxes, Radio Buttons, Drop Down Lists, Panels, 3 different Layout Managers. In the second part, you'll learn about all the events that the above objects use, complete with working examples for everything I demonstrate. Please leave a comment and vote!

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
