public interface ItemListener
extends EventListener

The listener interface for receiving item events. The class that is interested in processing an item event implements this interface. The object created with that class is then registered with a component using the component's addItemListener method. When an item-selection event occurs, the listener object's itemStateChanged method is invoked.
