Focus on the last active tab when closing current one?
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();
