I am new to Eclipse and Windowbuilder.
Now I am trying to add a popup menu to a Jlist
and according to the documentation, it is a simple matter.
I added a JPopupmenu to the JList by dragging it.
And the list looks fine a small square at the top left corner.
and I also added a menuitem to the menu.
But when I try to preview it or when I build the project and run it.
I clicked everywhere on the JList and nothing pops up at all.
I have changed the popup size to 100x100. still nothing happens.
here is the code windowbuilder generated:

private static void addPopup(Component component, final JPopupMenu popup) {
component.addMouseListener(new MouseAdapter() {
private void showMenu(MouseEvent e) {, e.getX(), e.getY());

And now I have a second problem. After I added the first popup menu. Now when I
try to add a popup menu anywhere there is an error message instead of the little
popup menu icon that i am dragging with.
the message says: Exception during live image creation. see error log for details.
here is the error log I found:


Does anyone have any idea what's going on?

Any help is greatly appreciate.
Thanks in advance.

Please provide a complete, self-contained test case and the complete exception from your Eclispe .metadata .log file.

Alternatively, click the Generate Report button in the error window and submit a bug to Eclipse Bugzilla (Tools / WindowBuilder / Swing).
