I am using the following code to display a JList in a applet. But nothing appears

package swingprac;

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;

public class TJList1 extends JApplet {

   JList list = null;
   MyListModel model = null;
   JScrollPane scrollPane = null;
   Container container = null;

   public void init() {
     container = this.getContentPane();
     container.setLayout(new GridLayout(1,1));
     model = new MyListModel();

     list = new JList(model);
     scrollPane = new JScrollPane();
     container.add(scrollPane);
     container.setVisible(true);
     list.setVisible(true);
     scrollPane.setVisible(true);
     this.setVisible(true);
     setVisible(true);
     show();
   }
}

class MyListModel extends AbstractListModel {
  int startYear = 1900;
  int endYear = 2000;
  int leapYear;

  public Object getElementAt(int index) {
    index = index + 1;
    if((startYear+index)%4==0)
      return "Year "+(startYear + index);
    else
      return null;
  }

  public int getSize() {
    return (endYear-startYear);
  }
}

Hmm, you haven't added the list to the scrollpane

scrollPane.getViewport().add(list);

>> Where do you add the list to the scrollpane?
That was no real question of course ;°)
You don't.

In your code you should

1) pass the list in the scroll pane constructor  (cf. object's post)

OR

2) pass the list in the scrollpane's setViewportView() function

         scrollPane.setViewportView(list);

Both are valid an lead to the same result.
