    Default Combobox Problem


    I have a combobox which is populated some some very long variable names.
    When i select one of these variables the name is displayed but because of the
    lenght of it it is being wrapped and i can only see the bottom half of the top
    line and the top half of the bottom line.
    Is there anyway to stop the wrapping.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Use a custom renderer. That's covered in the tutorial: How to Use Combo Boxes (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)
