    Default JComboBoxes & Events

    Hello all.

    I'm trying to figure out how to get a JTextField contents to change, based on what the user's current JComboBox selection is. I can get it to do it with JCheckBoxes, but I'm not understanding how to get the JComboBox to change it? I managed to get my JComboBox to change at one point, but it just continued to add (i'm changing numbers in a box) the numbers together, instead of just replacing them.

    Do I use ItemListener or ActionHandler for this type of activity?

    Without more details and code its tough to provide specific suggestions, but I'd recommend looking into adding an ItemListener to your JComboBox to list for changes in JComboBox selections.

    Hi kevinGreen!
    u can easily achieve that if you are a netbeans user. There is a tab under GUI design that is called Connection of events.
