I made a filechooser that enables the user to save a file.

I used netbean's gui maker for it.

I literally have just one thing stopping me from finishing my task: The save button does not actually do anything. You can click on it, but nothing happens.

How do I add an actionlistener or something to that button? I've tried but all I managed was to add the listener to the entire filechhoser, meaning I can click anywhere on the filechooser and it will save the file.

Hmmm I don't think I stated my case clearly enough, forgive me.

I'm using the netbeans drag 'n' drop gui editor. I dragged a filechooser on form the palette(that's a JFileChooser, right?), but I don't know how to make the Save button work. I have the file that should be save ready, but I don't know where to put the code to save the file.

I put an actionListener on the JFileChooser, but it doesn't do anything when I click save.
