    Default Dynamic content on JScrollPane

    Hello there, my 1st post in here ;)

    I recently started using swing and since then I managed to get used to must of the stuff. However, I'm having some trouble regarding dynamic contents:

    Suposing that I have a class "Car" and some other class that keeps a list of cars.

    On the graphical interface I'm trying to show the content of that list on a JScroll, as is (sort of like a list):

    "Car1" "Red" "150BHP" "InStock" "Serial1235"
    "Car2" "Black" "120BHP" "SoldOut" "Serial2334"

    with each string ("") possibly being a different label.

    Furthermore I was also hoping to being able to change the content of each row of the list. Per example: the "InStock" row would be a drop-down list where I would be able to update the status of the stock for each car.

    With my little knowledge on this subject, I was thinking on something like this:

    1) through code, iterate through the list and, for each entry,
    2) create a generic jpanel and add the necessary jLabels setting the text of each one according to the each car

    However, I think this would require some knowledge on layouts, borders, etc no?

    Sorry for the long post but I was trying to be as accurate as possible. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance ;)

    Get in the habit of using standard Java naming conventions!

    Yeah, that probably should do it. I will study its features. Thanks for the (quick) help :)
