Change jLabel properties in loop

Hi, I'm new here, so I'm not sure where to post this...

Basically I have a bunch of jlabels, who's properties I want to change in a loop.
Is there a simple way to iterate through the jlabels and set properties in the loop?

You would have to put them into an array or Collection to iterate them in a loop.

And welcome to JavaRanch

Thomas,
We have a forum dedicated for Swing. I will move this thread there for you.

Thanks, I know i have to put them in an array, though I'm not sure how to call them from there. What datatype would the array have to be?

I'm not sure that you could use a string:

I would like to do the following:

Then change the array type:


SCJP 1.4 - SCJP 6 - SCWCD 5 - OCEEJBD 6
