    Default Button with Dropdown Menu?

    Hi There,


    I am working on the swing application,and in my application i have a toolbar with a no of button's placed on them.Now from the buttons that are placed on the toolbar,some of them needs a drop down menu i.e Update Button has three submenu's 1)Update driver,2)Update vechile 3)Update User.i would not like to have a "seperate menubar" just for some of these Button.I googled this question and what i came across is that we can make use of popup menu to resolve these kind of problem.Is there any other alternative other than popupmenu?Can the popup menu be futher divided into submenu's ? I.e Update Driver->Update Name->First name,Middle name,Last Name.








    Kind Regards,
