Hi

I am very new to Java. I am trying to create a swing display of a java keyword array that I have entered, but I'm not sure how to do so. The code so far is as follows:



} // end class

What I would like to do is under the switch case 2, have a list of all the array elemets (except 0) display on either a table type format (5 columns, 10 rows), or just some neat list format inside a swing dialog box. Any help would be appreciated.

The obvious way to display a "list" in a Swing GUI is via a... JList. Have a look through the Swing tutorial -- that should give you a better start than what you have so far.

This code looks a little more involved then what I was hoping to achieve. I do not want to select anything from the list. I just want it to display the list on the screen. I am a beginner, and that code is too advanced for me.

doesn't get much easier than one line of code

"f.getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(new JList(javaKeyword)));"
