Hi

I don't know any simpler way to achive that.
HTML variant has the advantage that you can find tons of tools in order to design the HTML page, so I sugesst to do that.

Also, maybe some times you would like to deploy the help on a web site, no modifications will be required.

best regards,

 // Create a list
    String[] items = {"A", "B", "C", "D"};
    JList list = new JList(items);
   
    // Add a listener for mouse clicks
    list.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter() {
        public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent evt) {
            JList list = (JList)evt.getSource();
            if (evt.getClickCount() == 2) {          // Double-click
                // Get item index
                int index = list.locationToIndex(evt.getPoint());
                HelpDialog helpDialog=new HelpDialog(index);
                helpDialog.setVisible(true);
            }
        }
    });

where
class HelpDialog extends JDialog
{
public HelpDialog(int index)
{
    //store the index
    //initialise the dialog accordingly to the selected element from the list
}

}
