Create the following java program using any editor of your choice in say D:/ > SWING > com > tutorialspoint > gui >

SwingListenerDemo.java
package com.tutorialspoint.gui;

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;

public class SwingListenerDemo {
   private JFrame mainFrame;
   private JLabel headerLabel;
   private JLabel statusLabel;
   private JPanel controlPanel;

   public SwingListenerDemo(){
      prepareGUI();
   }

   public static void main(String[] args){
      SwingListenerDemo  swingListenerDemo = new SwingListenerDemo();  
      swingListenerDemo.showAdjustmentListenerDemo();
   }

   private void prepareGUI(){
      mainFrame = new JFrame("Java SWING Examples");
      mainFrame.setSize(400,400);
      mainFrame.setLayout(new GridLayout(3, 1));

      headerLabel = new JLabel("",JLabel.CENTER );
      statusLabel = new JLabel("",JLabel.CENTER);        

      statusLabel.setSize(350,100);
      mainFrame.addWindowListener(new WindowAdapter() {
         public void windowClosing(WindowEvent windowEvent){
	        System.exit(0);
         }        
      });    
      controlPanel = new JPanel();
      controlPanel.setLayout(new FlowLayout());

      mainFrame.add(headerLabel);
      mainFrame.add(controlPanel);
      mainFrame.add(statusLabel);
      mainFrame.setVisible(true);  
   }

   private void showAdjustmentListenerDemo(){
      headerLabel.setText("Listener in action: AdjustmentListener");      

      JPanel panel = new JPanel();
      JScrollBar scrollbar = new JScrollBar();
      scrollbar.addAdjustmentListener(new CustomAdjustmentListener());

      panel.add(scrollbar);
      controlPanel.add(panel);
      mainFrame.setVisible(true);  
   }
      class CustomAdjustmentListener implements AdjustmentListener {
         public void adjustmentValueChanged(AdjustmentEvent e) {
            statusLabel.setText("Adjustment value: "
               +Integer.toString(e.getValue()));
         }
      }
}
