    Default [SOLVED] Disabling a button not working

    I have a button which I can't seem to disable.
    Java Code:
    JButton temp = (JButton)event.getSource();
    temp.setText("WHY?");
    temp.disable();
    The text is set to "WHY?" but the button is not disabled, that's the part I find odd.

    Default

    disable() method is deprecated as of JDK 1.1 and was replaced by
    java.awt.Component.setEnabled(boolean)...

    try to use temp.setEnabled( boolean b )....
