Here is what I have so far. Now I just get the "No duplicates please!" message whenever I add anything to lbSelection.

I need to recognize that there is a duplicate and prevent the value from being entered into the list!

Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!













HERE is the whole program

do you really need to retain all the teams on the left?

Most similar-concept programs I've seen move the selection from the left to the right (or back),
meaning no possibility of duplicates.

I guess I don't need them but the text box above lbChoices is for a user to enter another team so I think I would need to keep them in the left side list.

OK, this bit looks easily fixable



now it shouldn't 'always' show.

do you still need help on duplicates? or was this all you were after?

I was hoping that line would prevent my duplicates but it didn't! So yes, still need help preventing duplicates!

this is just for the add single button
(comment out your old method, in case you need it later)

replace with this

Thanks so much! I couldn't stare at it any longer. This also helped me get the add all button working as well! Now if I can just figure out how to add text to the jlist from the jtextfield on a focuslost!

really a bad idea (many reasons why accidental loss of focus),
better to add a little 'add' button beside the textfield
