public abstract class AWTEvent
extends EventObject
The root event class for all AWT events. This class and its subclasses supercede the original java.awt.Event class. Subclasses of this root AWTEvent class defined outside of the java.awt.event package should define event ID values greater than the value defined by RESERVED_ID_MAX. The event masks defined in this class are needed ONLY by component subclasses which are using Component.enableEvents() to select for event types not selected by registered listeners. If a listener is registered on a component, the appropriate event mask is already set internally by the component.
