Hi, I am using a JList that contain JCheckBox, i use the follow ListRender to add the checkbox into JList. In my code, sometimes i need to disabled the JList, but the problem is the JList has been disabled but the JCheckBox still can be checked.

//list renderer
class CheckListRenderer extends JCheckBox implements ListCellRenderer {
   
          public CheckListRenderer() {
               setBackground(UIManager.getColor("List.textBackground"));
               setForeground(UIManager.getColor("List.textForeground"));
          }

          public Component getListCellRendererComponent(JList list, Object value,
               int index, boolean isSelected, boolean hasFocus) {
               setEnabled(list.isEnabled());
               setSelected(((CheckableItem)value).isSelected());
               setFont(list.getFont());
               setText(value.toString());
               return this;
          }
     }

Your renderer just handles painting the list.
You must have some code elsewhere that toggles the CheckableItem value, it is that code that you need to disable.

You should not call setSelected if the list is disabled.

Somewhere in your code you must call setSelected as a result of a checkbox being selected in the list.
If the list is disabled then you should not be doing this.
