I have a JList that the user is allowed to add names to. The JList is in a panel that has a boxlayout. I have other components to the right of the JList. The components to the right of the JList are in a separate panel and are also in a boxlayout. The JList is scrollable. When the user enters a name all of the components to the right shift rightward even thought the list stays the same size since it is scrollable. Is there any way I can prevent these components from shifting to the right?
