Scrolling in a JScrollPane problem

I have created a JList was built with a vector of
strings and then loaded into a JScrollPane. The scrollbars for the JScrollPane have both been set up as always. Some of the text in the JList is long and does not show in the list.
My problem is in the horizontal scrolling. The vertical scrollbar scrolls up and down, however, if the text is too long horizontally, I see several dots to the right but when I click the horizontal scrollbar nothing happens.
Any ideas??? I'm stuck.

// listOne is the JList and
// scrollOne is the JScrollPane
// listItems is a Vector of strings
listOne = new JList( listItems );
listOne.setCellRenderer(new TextListRenderer
listItems.elementAt( startIndex ), true);
listOne.setSelectionMode ( (ListSelectionModel.SINGLE_SELECTION);
listOne.setFont( new Font( "serif", Font.BOLD, 18 ) );

scrollOne = new JScrollPane( listOne, JScrollPane.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS, JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS );

I guess your calling setFixedCellWidth(xx) method...which restricts the Label Width...try removing it.
