18.20 java.awt.Event (JDK 1.0)

This class contains public instance variables that describe some kind of GUI event. In Java 1.1, this class has been superseded by AWTEvent and the java.awt.event package.

The class contains a large number of constants. Some of the constants specify the event type and are values for the id variable. Other constants are values for keys, like the function keys, that do not have ASCII (or Latin-1) values, and are set on the key field. Other constants are mask values that are ORed into the modifiers field to describe the state of the modifier keys on the keyboard. The target field is very important--it is the object for which the event occurred. The when field specifies when the event occurred. The x and y fields specify the mouse coordinates at which it occurred. Finally, the arg field is a value specific to the type of the event. Not all fields have valid values for all types of events.
