hello all,
I am not really a GUI designer, but these days I got to design some GUIs with JLists.
Well, My first question is what is the way used to set a JList header. for example we have 3 columns in jList, the first one is "Name", the second "Age" ....
My second question : is it possible to sort using these header items by clicking on them.

Also one question related to JPAnel, I want to display a notification in a jPanel that just appears on the button right of the screen and disapears by itself after 10 seconds. is this possible.

thanks a loooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot guys.

A JList doesn't have columns - you will probably want to use a JTable.

Regarding your JPanel question, I didn't understand it. I would advise to start a new thread for it and give more information.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
