Hello
I have a small problem with ListSelectionListener.
I can not copy dataList.getSelectedValue().toString(); to global String variable text.
How can I do it ?
This is inside of if statement and that is the problem.
Anyone knows how to solve it ?

ListSelectionListener lListener = new ListSelectionListener() {
			
			public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) {
				dataList = (JList) e.getSource();
				if(!(dataList.isSelectionEmpty())){
					
					text = dataList.getSelectedValue().toString();
					
					
				} else {
					
				}
					
				
				
			}
			
		};
		dataList.addListSelectionListener(lListener);

How can we possibly answer that? You haven't told us what next is or what drawimage is or where they are.

The if test can't cause that problem. Exactly what error message do you get?

Here is all code of the file_tree class.
I am coding program to display image.
But I have external class to drawImage.
I add small label to display text. But it didn't display anything.

public class file_tree extends JPanel implements ListSelectionListener{
	
	 JList dataList;
	 JLabel label1 = new JLabel();
	 ListSelectionModel listSelectionModel;
	 File my_dir;
	 String[] filenames_in_dir;
	 String text;
	 
	 int value;
	public file_tree(){
		my_dir = new File("backgrounds");
		assert(my_dir.exists()); // the directory exists
		assert(my_dir.isDirectory()); // and is actually a directory
				
		filenames_in_dir = my_dir.list();
		
		dataList = new JList(filenames_in_dir);
		text = new String();
		
		setBackground(Color.LIGHT_GRAY);
		setBorder(BorderFactory.createTitledBorder("Lista"));
		
		//dataList.setSelectionMode(ListSelectionModel.SINGLE_INTERVAL_SELECTION);		 
	
	
		ListSelectionListener lListener = new ListSelectionListener() {
			
			public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) {
				dataList = (JList) e.getSource();
				if((dataList.isSelectionEmpty())){
					
					
					
					
				} else {
					text = dataList.getSelectedValue().toString();
				}
					
				
				
			}
			
		};
		dataList.addListSelectionListener(lListener);		
			
		
		label1.setText(text);
		
		
		
		JScrollPane scrollPane = new JScrollPane(dataList);
		scrollPane.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(250,80));
		scrollPane.setViewportView(dataList);
		
		add(scrollPane);
		add(label1);
		 
		 
	}
	
	
	
	@Override
	public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) {
		
		
	}
	
	
	
	
	
}

I need to get value from dataList.getSelectedValue().toString(); and put to variable from next drawImage

How can i do this ?

import javax.swing.*;

import java.awt.image.*;
import javax.swing.event.ListSelectionEvent;
import javax.swing.event.ListSelectionListener;

public class drawImage extends JPanel implements ListSelectionListener{
	String FileName = new String();
	file_tree first = new file_tree();
	JLabel picLabel = new JLabel();
	ImageLabel label;
	
	public drawImage() {
		ListSelectionListener lListener = new ListSelectionListener() {
			
			public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) {
				first.dataList = (JList) e.getSource();
				
				if((first.dataList.isSelectionEmpty())){
					
					
					
					
				} else {
					
					
					
					//;
					label = new ImageLabel(new ImageIcon(first.dataList.getSelectedValue().toString()));
					
					
					
				}  
									
				
			}
			
		};
		first.dataList.addListSelectionListener(lListener);	
		
		add(label);
	}
	
	
	class ImageLabel extends JLabel {

		  public ImageLabel(String img) {
		    this(new ImageIcon(img));
		  }

		  public ImageLabel(ImageIcon icon) {
		    setIcon(icon);
		    // setMargin(new Insets(0,0,0,0));
		    setIconTextGap(0);
		    // setBorderPainted(false);
		    setBorder(null);
		    setText(null);
		    setSize(icon.getImage().getWidth(null), icon.getImage().getHeight(null));
		  }

		}

	@Override
	public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent arg0) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		
	}

	
	
	
}
