Hi,

I have a superclass Maxi that setCellRender(RendererC) for it's List A (a JList). This is the RendererC is declared as a inner class for Maxi

I have extended this superclass Maxi to Class Mini, and wish to retain the functionality of List A, but I would like to change the renderering for List A for Class Mini, so I also declared an inner RendererC for Class Mini, and super.initComponents(), setCellRender for List A to RendererC of Class Mini. But List A continue to retain the outlook of the RendererC in Maxi...

Can I know why this is so, and how can I change it to respond to the class in Mini instead?

After calling super.initComponents() change the cell renderer


list.setCellRenderer(rendererC);

because you are still creating an instance of Maxi's inner class.

add a createRenderer() method that creates your cell renderer and call that from initComponents().
then override createRenderer() in your subclass.
