JList question

Hi folks,

I have a JList

String[] name={......}
JList j=new JList(name)
How shall I do in the ListSelectionListener so that when I click one list item, Java will print that "xxx (the name of the selected item) is selected"

thanks

Easiest is to make you list a member variable and use:

public void       valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e)
{
   System.out.println(j.getSelectedItem());
}

or o/wise:

public void       valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e)
{
    JList list = (JList) e.getSource();
    System.out.println(list.getSelectedItem());
}

I use Eclipse. It says the method getSelectedItem()) is undifined for the type JList.
