Mouse Right Click Example Java

This Java code on Mouse Right Click Example explains how to handle the right clicks of mouse key.

Mouse Right Click Example
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
public class Demo extends Frame
  Button btn;
  public Demo()
    setLayout(new FlowLayout());
    btn = new Button("OK");

    btn.addMouseListener(new MyListener());

  public static void main(String args[])
    new Demo();
class MyListener  extends MouseAdapter
  public void mouseClicked (MouseEvent e) 
  {       			// write here your event handling code
    if (e.getModifiers() == MouseEvent.BUTTON3_MASK)
      System.out.println("You right clicked on the button");

Other way of event handling is:

System.out.println(“You right clicked on the button”);

The static constant modifier MouseEvent.BUTTON3_MASK or the method isMetaDown() of MouseEvent differentiates the right clicks.

btn.addMouseListener(new MyListener());

Instead of button btn, it can be any GUI component like Checkbox etc. Just register the MouseListener or MouseAdapter to a GUI component you would like.

We extended MouseAdapter to override only one method mouseClicked (MouseEvent e) and if MosueListener is implemented, it is required to override all the five methods.
