I created an applet with buttons. On my buttons is a text and if I click a button I want this text to appear in a TextArea.

public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
if (e.getActionCommand() == "Blabla") {
ta.append("Blabla");
}
}

ta is the name of my TextArea. The stupid thing is that the text doesn't appears in the TextArea. I also tried with insert() ... what am I doing wrong???
