MouseListener inside loop isnt using updated variable values

Posted by: admin October 29, 2018 Leave a comment


i want to first apologize for my poor english.
I made some JPanels wich im putting inside one JPanel and this last JPanel im putting it in one JScrollPane, each Jpanel have some JLabels that have text inside em, i’ve done that and everything is working until now, then i added a mouseListener to System.out.print the text inside the JLabels.
The texts are differents but on the console im getting the same text, here’s my code:
