JList.setModel() from NetBeans

  1. Default JList.setModel() from NetBeans

    Here's what I want:

    public class ListSample {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    String labels[] = { "A", "B", "C", "D","E", "F", "G", "H","I", "J" };

    String title = "JList Sample";
    JFrame f = new JFrame(title);
    f.setDefaultCloseOperation(JFrame.EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
    JList list = new JList(labels); //Jlist to array!!!!!!
    JScrollPane scrollPane = new JScrollPane(list);

    Container contentPane = f.getContentPane();
    contentPane.add(scrollPane, BorderLayout.CENTER);

    f.setSize(200, 200);
    f.setVisible(true);
    }
    }

    However, I can't seem to find the button to allow me to edit the
    particular code from within NetBeans to accomplish this seemingly simply
    task.


    Here's what I have:

    thufir@arrakis:~/bcit-comp2611-project2/src$
    thufir@arrakis:~/bcit-comp2611-project2/src$ cat a00720398/view/Tabs.java
    | head -n 86 | tail -n 8
    //pre-initialization code@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    guestsList.setModel(new javax.swing.AbstractListModel()
    {
    String[] strings = { "guest 1", "guest 2" };
    public int getSize() { return strings.length; }
    public Object getElementAt(int i) { return strings[i]; }
    });
    //post initialization @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    thufir@arrakis:~/bcit-comp2611-project2/src$
    thufir@arrakis:~/bcit-comp2611-project2/src$


    What I want is:


    guestsList.setModel(myArray); //that's it



    I'd like to do this from within the GUI builder, just can't figure out
    which button to click.



    thanks,

    Thufir

    If you insist on complicating matters, and doing it with both hands tied behind
    your back by the GUI builder...

    Select the JList. In the Properties window select the Properties tab and click
    on the elipsis (...) to the right of the "model" row. This will open the model
    dialog box for the JList. In the dialog box select "Custom code" in the "Set
    model property" combo box. Enter your custom code...

    Alternatively, you could just enter the code above as is and forget about the
    GUI builder.

    Heh, apparently I didn't cancel the post quickly enough! After I "gave
    up" and posted that, *then* I figured it out. Hence the other thread
    which you helped me out with
