Inserting, selecting and displaying data from a JList!

P: 9
Hello there,

Can you help me in following problem:

Am working on a chemistry dictionary. I want to have all the chemistry terms in a JList and whenever i select a term from a JList, it displays the meaning in a text area (as any encyclopedia) and the term in a textfield. My questions:

1. How can i load the chemistry terms in to the JList and meanings in the textarea and store them?
2. How can i select a term and diplays it in the textarea?

Please, may you give me where can i start, so i can build this dictionary properly.

Thanks alot!

The first thing you should do is put all the terms in a database from where you can fetch the data when needed.

Post once you have done this...
