This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
I would like to be able to use the String containing the 26 letters of the alphabet in a JList. For now I have to put them in a String array. Is there any way of not having to declare a String array and using the String of letters in a JList?
One possibility is to create a class that implements the ListModel interface. For convenience, you might want to extend AbstractListModel since it provides default implementations for some of the methods. If you need more information, check the Swing trail in the Java Tutorial (see the link in my sig).
