In my JList, there are items which are bold and not bold.

When the list contain a single bold item and at the selection time (by mouse) , the Foreground Color and BackGround Color are blue (can't read the item in the list).
The setSelectionForeground method will not get effect in selected stage.

This issue will get when we comment the line as
// listModel.addElement("Am Not Bold");
on the below java pgm.

Why this happens ? How can I add a bold item in JList without this issue ?
Any other solutions for this ?

please help
thanks in advance.

-----------------------------Java Program-----------------------

import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;

public class ListExample extends JFrame
private JList list = new JList();
private DefaultListModel listModel = new DefaultListModel();
listModel.addElement("<html><B>Am Bold</B></html>");
listModel.addElement("Am Not Bold");
public static void main(String s[])
UIManager.setLookAndFeel(UIManager.getSystemLookAn dFeelClassName());
}catch(Exception e){}
ListExample l = new ListExample();

I have tried out your code it works fine. When the bold text is selected in the List box the foregound color is white and background color is blue. and the text is visible in bold.
