Hello,
I am trying to populate a JList in the button click event. So I just
defined a vector and then
doing list1 = new JList(v); . But have no luck yet. When I tried in the
cmd prompt I can see all the values.

It would be great if you can try copy pasting the below code in your
(eclipse thats what I have) editor and you can see the results. I am
just parsing an XML file located the specified URL in the program.

Please help.
thanks in advance,
-L

The problem seems to be that you don't understand the difference between
references and objects. When you say "list1 = new JList(v)" you are
creating a brand new JList object. It is entirely a different JList
from the one that you added earlier to your GUI. Since you never add
this new JList to any visible container, it never actually displays.

Instead of creating a new JList, you probably want to modify the
existing one. If your desire is to completely replace the contents,
then look up the setModel method, and the DefaultListModel class. You
can use a DefaultListModel instead of the Vector you are using now.
