    Question JComboBox

    Hi all,

    A bit stuck with a problem I have to solve :

    Basically I have 2 ComboBoxes, each with 4 options ( say a,b,c,d).
    I also have a Button and a TextField on one window.

    I want the user to select an option from ComboBox1 (say a), then select a different option from ComboBox2 (say b), then click the button and a number (say 2.5) will appear in the text field. This number will be different for each combination of letters.

    I have managed to display it all as a GUI but not sure how to go about actually programming the options and relevant numbers.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Several options:

    1. A massive if statement
    2. Each option has a unique value. When they are added/multiplied it gives result you want to display
    3. Map
