    you cannot!!!

    here is an alternative,
    you can initialize first a variable with setter and getter method.... before that actionPerformed ends its task, call the setter method and store that string in that variable...

    Instead of waiting the expected value from a void type(which is impossible) just call the getter method after the actionPerformed invoked....
    freedom exists in the world of ideas
