Not that I know of - I think you just have to get down & dirty with MouseListener, MouseWheelListener, and MouseMotionListener

I think i get the JPanel crash with MouseListener too, tried it a few days, ago.. and did stuff correct i think.

If it crashed then you were doing something wrong - the whole of Swing relies on mouse listening, and its really solid code. Try again?

Tried again now, did

import java.awt.event.MouseEvent;
import java.awt.event.MouseListener;

public class test extends JPanel implements MouseListener

and all of the method: mouseClicked, mouseEntered, mouseExited, mousePressed, mouseReleased

I think the trouble is caused by focusing, i had trouble with KeyListener earlier on, and had to use keybindings. You sure its nothing similar for mouse?

Nevermind, i forgot to add the addMouseListener(this); line. Sorry for my stupidity, thought i had it all.

Thanks anyway! :)
