Create a JList Component in Java


In this section, you will learn how to create a JList component of swing. JList is a component of GUI. It provides the multiple items in a list and some times it shows the data in multiple columns in a list. Lists are used to select item from the item's group like combo box but the major difference between list and the combo box is that you can select only one item from the combo box since you can select more than one item at once from the list. You can easily add or remove items from or to the JList component of swing. The JList component has been shown in this article below:
