Hello All, I am a little confused about how I can make a JList scrollable. I understand that I should create a JScrollPane and add the JList to it, but there must be more because I cannot make this work correctly. When I use the scrollbar to scroll down, I do not see all of the data in the JList. There must be something more that I should do. Can someone please take a look at this sample code and tell me what I need to do to see all of the data without making the JList bigger? Many thanks to you!!!
I think that what you may be doing wrong is the way you are adding items to your list. You need to add the list items to a DefaultListModel. For example:
also, vector is a bit of legacy code. You would be well to use an java.awt.List or an Array. Hope that helps.

Hi Barry, Your problem is in the following line: list.setPreferredSize(dim); What this tells the scrollPane is that its child is the same size as it is supposed to be. If you remove the line shown above the list will be sized according to its contents and all will be well. Regards, Manfred.
