Right, I am sure I am doing something wrong, but I can't find it.

All I am trying to do, at this point, is set the model to something I create. I can't even clear the standard model...

Any ideas?

I hate Java with a passion. Why must everything be like a trip across a old, rickety wooden bridge over a pit filled with lava, with Kwejfdwijefioj the Unthinkable blocking your way?

Hi...

What a mess... Just cleaning :

First, don't extend JList. This is not necessary.

Second, define your model in another class. So it can be reused.

  class MyModel extends DefaultListModel {

    private ArrayList<SearchItem> items = new ArrayList<SearchItem>();

    public void addItem(SearchItem item) {
      items.add(item);
      fireContentsChanged(this, 0, items.size());
    }

    public Object getElementAt(int index) {
      return items.get(index);
    }

    public int getSize() {
      return items.size();
    }

  }

Then, here is how to use it :

   JList list = new JList();
    MyModel model = new MyModel();
    list.setModel(model);
    list.setCellRenderer(new PolyRenderer());
    model.addItem(new SearchItem("Test"));
    model.addItem(new SearchItem("Test1"));
    model.addItem(new SearchItem("Test2"));
    model.addItem(new SearchItem("Test3"));

If you want to test it, add it to a frame :

    JFrame frame = new JFrame();
    frame.getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(list));
    frame.setVisible(true);
    frame.pack();

Third, you also can group all the methods related to the renderer in a separate class : AddWithGridBag, Opacify, setColorsForSelectionState.

Hope that helps
