    Default Custom JList

    Hello,

    when we use default JList filled with some values we get something like this:



    Is it possible to make a custom JList, which I could fill with several values (as in the image below), where I could specify those values and their position in JList (for example as in the picture "Name" at the left side, "Birth" right side, "Address" at the bottom)?

    Write a Custom Cell Renderer, a class that implements ListCellRenderer and set the JList cell renderer passing this an instance of this class. See the following link: How to Use Lists (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)
