    Default History of previouse input in JTextField


    I am looking for the swing code that make the JTextField to remember the earlier type value in it.

    Like I type abc in JTextField and do some process(any) then If I clicked on it it should show the previouse value also in drop down when clicked.

    Might want to google something like "Java Swing autocomplete" to get started.
