It should, but I'm not getting it to..
I have subclassed the JList in order to make it fit into my BoxLayout.
therefore I have
CustomJList myJList = new CustomJList();
to enable JScrollPane..
JScrollPane myScroll = new JScrollPane(myJList);
I don't see scrollbars though! I have enough information to make the JList scroll but the scrollbar just simply wouldn't appear.
