I'd like someone to point me in the right direction. I am not sure how to word my question so I can make an accurate search.
In my program, I have it so the user can drop a folder onto a JTextArea (housed inside a JScrollPane) and the contents of that folder (each file name) are listed in the JTA. I want to have a JCheckBox immediately to the left of each name, so the user can select one of the files for special treatment.
I've seen this done in email programs, so the user can select more than one message, but I don't know what this combination of components is called. Could someone shed some light on what I should be searching for in order to implement this?
I've got just enough Java knowledge to royally screw everything up. :-)
