List Events

Lists can fire two separate types of events. When a list item is selected or deselected, the List fires an ItemEvent. However, when the user double clicks on a list item, the List fires an ActionEvent. Therefore, you can register both an ItemListener to process selections and/or an ActionListener to process double clicks.

public void addItemListener(ItemListener l)
public void removeItemListener(ItemListener l)
public void addActionListener(ActionListener l)
public void removeActionListener(ActionListener l)

The action command in the ActionEvent is the list item which was double clicked.
