How to report AWT/Swing event queue length programmatically?

like below fixes the issue Interesting subject. I've investigated the EventQueue code a bit, and while I haven't solved your problem, I may have some useful pointers:
Oracle's implementation of EventQueue doesn't keep a size variable, so unless you take over complete control of the EventQueue (see 3), there's no way you're going to do better than a linear scan of the queue when using Oracle's JRE. You can write you're own EventQueue (probably copy-pasting Oracle's implementation plus some tweaking** will be the easiest) and use EventQueue.push(EventQueue) to install your own implementation. All events in the queue will be transferred to your queue, so you can count them as they are posted to your queue. Unfortunately, this is still a linear scan, but at least now it's platform independent. Alternatively, you could install your own EventQueue implementation (see 2) as soon as possible after the original event queue has been created (do this in a static code block at the start of the class that contains your main method). Then, your implementation can count all events as they are posted and you don't have to scan the queue when you want to know the size. You'll just have to hope no one else pushes their own EventQueue on top of yours ;)

it fixes the issue OK, I finally got everything to work. I am posting the SSCCE for a correctly working example. The trick is to hide the glasspane using "javax.swing.SwingUtilities.invokeLater()" method. Wrap the necessary code in a Runnable and then invoke it using invokeLater. In such a case, Swing processes all the mouse events (nothing happens since a glasspane intercepts them), and then hides the glasspane. Here is the SSCCE.
code :
public class BusyCursorTest2 extends javax.swing.JFrame {

    public BusyCursorTest2() {

        javax.swing.JButton wait = new javax.swing.JButton("Wait 3 seconds");
        getContentPane().setLayout(new java.awt.GridLayout(2, 1, 0, 0));
        getContentPane().add(new javax.swing.JToggleButton("Click me"));
        setTitle("Busy Cursor");
        setSize(300, 200);

        wait.addActionListener(new java.awt.event.ActionListener() {

            public void actionPerformed(java.awt.event.ActionEvent event) {

                final java.util.Timer timer = switchToBusyCursor(BusyCursorTest2.this);

                try {
                    //do something expensive in EDT or otherwise
                    try {
                    } catch (InterruptedException e) {
                        //do nothing
                } finally {
                    switchToNormalCursorEventThread(BusyCursorTest2.this, timer);



    public static java.util.Timer switchToBusyCursor(final javax.swing.JFrame frame) {
        java.util.TimerTask timerTask = new java.util.TimerTask() {

            public void run() {

        final java.util.Timer timer = new java.util.Timer();
        timer.schedule(timerTask, DELAY_MS);
        return timer;

    public static void switchToNormalCursorEventThread(final javax.swing.JFrame frame, final java.util.Timer timer) {

        Runnable r = new Runnable() {

            public void run() {
                switchToNormalCursor(frame, timer);




    public static void switchToNormalCursor(final javax.swing.JFrame frame, final java.util.Timer timer) {

    private static void startWaitCursor(javax.swing.JFrame frame) {

    private static void stopWaitCursor(javax.swing.JFrame frame) {

    private static void startEventTrap(javax.swing.JFrame frame) {

    private static void stopEventTrap(javax.swing.JFrame frame) {

    private static final java.awt.event.MouseAdapter mouseAdapter = new java.awt.event.MouseAdapter() {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        javax.swing.SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {

            public void run() {
                new BusyCursorTest2();



    private static final int DELAY_MS = 250;

it helps some times For your specific example you can simply call AbstractButton#doClick.
If you need to create synthetic events for the general case, make sure fill in all fields that a real AWTEvent would have, since the event handlers may take them for granted.

This might help you Good question, I'm also a advocate of using proper terminology.
Queue, message queue, and event queue are referring to the same construct (event loop queue). This construct has the callbacks which are fired in the event loop.
