    I dont know what you mean by action listener. But if you are talking about events, here is my understanding of events:

    -> An event handler is an interrupt routine

    An example is of it is the serialPort interrupt:

    serialPort1.DataReceived += new SerialDataReceivedEventHandler(serialPort1_DataReceived);

    void serialPort1_DataReceived(object sender, SerialDataReceivedEventArgs e)
    MessageBox.Show("Serial port interrupt routine");

    So in this case if there is data on the serial port, the program would automatically stop what it was doing and it will go to the function serialPort1_DataReceived(), and it will display the messagebox saying "Serial port interrupt routine". After completing the routine, the program would then automatically continue where it left off when the interrupt occured.
