Create JButton example

With this example we shall show you how to create a JButton component for your Java Desktop Application. JButtons are very frequently used, and it is a very standard practice to use buttons for basic input operations in GUI applications.

It’s very easy to create a JButton, as all you have to do is:

  • Create a class tha extends JFrame.
  • Create the JButons you want.
  • Use add method to add JButtons to the frame.

Let’s see the code snippet that follows:

package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.desktop;

import java.awt.FlowLayout;

import javax.swing.JButton;
import javax.swing.JFrame;

public class CreateJButtonExample extends JFrame {

	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;

	public CreateJButtonExample() {

		// set flow layout for the frame
		this.getContentPane().setLayout(new FlowLayout());

		JButton button1 = new JButton();
		button1.setText("Java Code Geeks");

		JButton button2 = new JButton("Java Examples & Code Snippets");

		// add buttons to frame


	private static void createAndShowGUI() {

  //Create and set up the window.

  JFrame frame = new CreateJButtonExample();

  //Display the window.





	public static void main(String[] args) {

  //Schedule a job for the event-dispatching thread:

  //creating and showing this application's GUI.

  javax.swing.SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {

public void run() {





This was an example on how to create a JButton.
