Checkboxes as JTree nodes - How to implement the two queries given?

Hi,
I am attaching the code snippet where I have checkboxes as JTree nodes. I get perfect output with this code, but I need to have two more requirements to be fulfilled.

1) What should be done in this code such that the parent node 'No Group' is not displayed and only its children are to be displayed?
2) When I press the submit button, how can I get the names of all the children irrespective of groups, which are checked, in a collection?
Just copy paste and run this code. It is a perfectly working one and after executing the code, my requirements will be crystal clear.

Please help with these 2 requirements.
Any help in this regard will be well appreciated with points.

>> 1) What should be done in this code such that the parent node 'No Group' is not displayed and only its children are to be displayed?
And what parent(node) do that children then have? The root?

>> 2) When I press the submit button, how can I get the names of all the children irrespective of groups, which are checked, in a collection?
You should probably have a look @ "Visiting All the Nodes in a JTree Component": http://www.exampledepot.com/egs/javax.swing.tree/GetNodes.html

I solved it zzynx,

1)
>>DefaultMutableTreeNode rootNode = new DefaultMutableTreeNode("Root");
          
        for(int i =0;i<groupVector.size();i++){
            String group = ((Vector)groupVector.elementAt(i)).elementAt(0).toString();
           
            if (!group.equals("No Group")) {
                DefaultMutableTreeNode node = new DefaultMutableTreeNode(new CheckBoxNode(((Vector)groupVector.elementAt(i)).elementAt(0).toString(), false));
                for(int j=1;j<((Vector)groupVector.elementAt(i)).size();j++){
                        node.add(new DefaultMutableTreeNode(new CheckBoxNode(((Vector)groupVector.elementAt(i)).elementAt(j).toString(), false)));            
                }
                rootNode.add(node);
            } else {
                for(int j=1;j<((Vector)groupVector.elementAt(i)).size();j++){
                    rootNode.add(new DefaultMutableTreeNode(new CheckBoxNode(((Vector)groupVector.elementAt(i)).elementAt(j).toString(), false)));            
                }
            }
           
        }

2)
>>public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {  
    if (e.getActionCommand().equals("Submit")) {
        ArrayList<String> names = new ArrayList<String>();
        fillCheckedNodes(names, rootNode);
    }
}
...
...
private void fillCheckedNodes(List<String> names, DefaultMutableTreeNode node) {
    if (node.isLeaf()) {
        CheckBoxNode cbn = (CheckBoxNode) node.getUserObject();
        if (cbn.isSelected())
            names.add(cbn.getText());
    }
    else
        for (int i = 0; i < node.getChildCount(); i++)
            fillCheckedNodes(names, (DefaultMutableTreeNode) node.getChildAt(i));
}





Still, you deserve 500.
