    Default {} after new operator, what does it mean?

    simple question:
    usually one would say, concerning the new operator:
    JPanel leftHalf = new JPanel();
    but what happens when {}; are added?
    BTW studying swing stuff....


    Java Code:
    JPanel leftHalf = new JPanel() {
                //Don't allow us to stretch vertically.
                public Dimension getMaximumSize() {
                    Dimension pref = getPreferredSize();
                    return new Dimension(Integer.MAX_VALUE,
                                         pref.height);
                }
            };

    Thanks eRaaaa

    Have another simple one:
    I've got a class that extends JPanel
    and declare a button b
    when registering that button like this:
    b.addActionListener(this);

    "this" refers to the JPanel, right?

    Yes.
    Which implies that your subclass of JPanel implements the ActionListener interface.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
