Adding components to JFrame in Netbeans Swing GUI Builder

I am trying to create my application using Netbeans GUI Builder, but I have a situation here.

When I drag and drop a component(Jlabel or any other used defined component) to JPanel from Palette window of GUI Builder, the Java code is automatically added by the Netbeans. For eg. the following code is generated:


Now I have a ArrayList which need to store the component objct which is added by GUIBuilder. In this case the object added is jLabel1.


So I need to store this object in this ArrayList. Infact I need the new component object to be automatically added to this list, whenever a new component is added by GUIBuilder.

Since GUIBuilder generates the Java code for added component automatically, how do I make GUIBuilder to update this ArrayList automatically whenever a new component is added?

Can anybody please help me to figure this out?

Thanks in advance.

Hi dinesh,
If you are posting the query in more than one forum, please be forthright about it: BeForthrightWhenCrossPostingToOtherSites

As for your question - this is not possible using the GUI builder. Simply code by hand and you can control it.
