Hi there,

I am new to java GUI stuff. I have a array of names say

I want to display them as checkBoxes in a JScrollPane. and have a button "Add" next to the scrollpanel. So when a user selects the contacts say 1,3,and5 and press the add button I want to get the names user selected and perform some action.

Any suggestions to add JCheckBox to JScrollPane is really appreciated.

*The testContacts is dynamic.

Thanks in Advance.

Well, normally you'd just add a JPanel to the JScrollPane, and then put other components into the JPanel in the usual way.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
