    Which part of this are you having trouble with?

    I believe what you are looking for is a JList, not a JComboBox.

    Kevin, looks like he's already been told this before, but doesn't seem to believe us.

    @original poster: so pop up your JList in a JDialog if need be. But again, you shouldn't use a JComboBox for this, no matter how many forums you try to ask this question in.
