I'm fairly new to java and just started working with swing. I've been doing well with it but i've hit a snag. I've created menubar, menu and added all menu items to it. I'm using menu items, menucheckbox items and menu radiobuttons. I'm using ItemListener to make them work. All radio and check box items work but the menu items work. I know the code that the menu items launch works because i've tested them with JButtons. Any help will be appreciated.
