{
  JFrame frame;
  JCheckBox checkBoxArray[] = new JCheckBox[3];
  JTextField textField;
  JLabel label;
  JPanel panel;
  CheckBoxItemListener()
  {
    frame = new JFrame("JCheckBox Event Handling");
    frame.setLayout(new GridLayout(3,1));
    panel = new JPanel();
    checkBoxArray[0] = new JCheckBox("Java"); 
    checkBoxArray[1] = new JCheckBox("C++");
    checkBoxArray[2] = new JCheckBox("C");
    for(int i = 0; i<3; i++)
    {
       panel.add(checkBoxArray[i]);
       checkBoxArray[i].addItemListener(this);
    }
    textField = new JTextField(20);

  public void itemStateChanged(ItemEvent ie)
  {
    String message="You have used: "; 
    for(int i=0; i<3; i++)
    {
     if(checkBoxArray[i].isSelected())
       message += checkBoxArray[i].getText() + "  ";
    }
