Hi everyone,

I have a JTabbedPane and I am trying to figure out how to code it so that when closing the current tab, the last active tab is focused. I have some methods as below but they do not work as when closing, the stateChange method is called. Does anyone know how to code this and have it be n levels deep, not just one?
	    frame.tabbedPane.addChangeListener(new ChangeListener() {
	        public void stateChanged(ChangeEvent e) {
	        	previousTab = currentTab;	    
	        	currentTab = frame.tabbedPane.getSelectedIndex();
	        	System.out.println("old: " + previousTab);
	        	System.out.println("current: " + currentTab);

public static void closeTab(JFrame frame1) {
        Component c = frame1.tabbedPane.getSelectedComponent();
        if( c != null ){
	        	System.out.println("Setting tab: " + previousTab);
	        	currentTab = frame.tabbedPane.getSelectedIndex();
