    Where is your SSCCE? Note that this shouldn't be your whole program, but it should demonstrate exactly what you're doing.

    Until then, recommended reading: How to Write an Action Listener (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Writing Event Listeners)

    Hook up your event handler to all your buttons (and only buttons) so you can safely cast the ae.getSource() value to a JButton. Get the text from that button and do with it as you please.

    kind regards,
