Command Button in java

A Command Button or Push Button is a component that contains a label and that generates an event when it is pressed.
Button defines these two constructors:
1. Button( )
2. Button(String str)
1. The first version creates an empty button.
2. The second creates a button that contains str as a label.
After a button has been created, you can set its label by calling setLabel( ). You can retrieve its label by calling getLabel( ).
These methods are as follows:
1. void setLabel(String str)
2. String getLabel( )
Here, str becomes the new label for the button.

String str = ae.getActionCommand();
if(str.equals("Yes")) {
msg = "You pressed Yes.";
else if(str.equals("No")) {
msg = "You pressed No.";
else {
msg = "You pressed Undecided.";
public void paint(Graphics g) {
g.drawString(msg, 6, 100);
