    Default JLabel highlighting in crossword

    Hey guys, Im programming a crossword in Java, I have finished GUI and everything, my crossword consists of two-dimensional array[][] of JLabels- cells.
    Now i want to add a MouseListener that when i click on one cell in the crossword, it will change color. I know that JComponents haave setBackground(Color) method, but the problem is, that I dont know how to code which particular cell i clicked on.
    Sorry for my English, hope u understood me.. :)

    Moved from New to Java.

    MouseEvent has a method that returns the source of the event.

    No, I don't believe in spoonfeeding. Read the API and find out for yourself, and/or go through the Oracle tutorials.

    Also, please spell words in full -- 'you' not 'u' -- this is a programming forum, not SMS chat.
