How-to work with InputVerification

// when the user navigates out of a textfield this event is used to check the entry
public boolean callBackInputVerifier(String ID, String ID_Parent, String text, int error) {
// ID is DF_MyTextfield
// text is the entry in this field
// JEasy checks each field and gives an error

How-to work with TabbedPane events

// TabbedPanes fire ChangeEvents

How-to work with TableModel events

//To get changes of data in rows or cells get the TableModelEvent
 * All events from the TableModel of the JETable are 
 * send to this callBack.
 * @param       TableModelEvent the event send by the TableModel
 * @param       ID              the id of the JEObject
 * @param       ID_parent       the id of the JEObject where the component was added

                String cellentry = tl.getTableModel().getValueAt(iFirstRow, iCol).toString();

How-to get Mouse events in tables

//Example: right mouse click will popup a menu
 * All Mouse events from the JETable are 
 * send to this callBack.
 * @param       AWTEvent the event send by the Table
 * @param       ID              the id of the JEObject
 * @param       ID_parent       the id of the JEObject where the component was added
 * @param       row             the row of the tableModel 
 * @param       column  the column of the tableModel

How-to use a message as the presentation of a business object

A message is the way to serialize the entrys of GUI-Objects like JEDatafields, 
JERadioButtons, JEListboxes, JETables, JEPanels and other JEObjects.
These JEObjects are defined as elements of the message.
The method getMessage() reads the entries of JEObjects and builds an XML string.
The method putMessage() fills the JEObjects out of an XML string.
        // get the message object
        JEMessage om = (JEMessage)oht.get("MS_MyMessage");
        // get only JEObjects with entries
        String s = om.getMessage(JEMessage.ONLY_FILLED);
The XML-String may looks like
