Editable JList

I have an applet that has a panel that is made up a JList. This list is all populated with a data vector. Now, I would like to be able to edit the elements directly inside the JList. So maybe if I double clicked on an element in the list than a cursor would appear and then I could up date that particular list. Thus containing all editing of the JList within itself. I know I could use a combination of components to to so but what I invision is a PopUp menu that comes up on the JList that enable me to ADD,UPDATE,DELETE from the already populated JList for proper saving later on to a database.

You need to override isCellEditable and implement whatever editable policy you require.

JList does not support what you want to do.

The easiest way to do handle this would be to instead use a single column JTable which can be made to look just like a JList.

objects,

Thanks for the input, I have tried what you suggested and for the most part I will be able to have the functionality that I require but do you know how to change whether or not a cell is editable in the JTable after the table has been created and placed on a panel to be viewed. I know that you can overwrite isCellEditable() from DefaultTableModel to specify which cells are editable at the time the JTable is constructed but after this point I can't figure out a way to make editable and of the cells previously set to non-editable.
