Help: JComboBox and Events
Hi, this is my first time here and i was just wondering if anyone could answer a question for me.
How do you use events such as ItemListener or ActionListener with JComboBoxs? Say if I have a JComboBox
JComboBox jc = new JComboBox();
Container contentPane = getContentPane();
I know how to setup a combo box but i don't know how to get it to do something. What I want to be able to do is that if the users chooses "track a" from the JComboBox , then it does something else. I've been looking for a way to get the action to choose something.
I know you use getSource() and things like that but , as you can see, I'm a bit confused about it. If anyone know any good sites for JComboBox tutorials or could help , I would be very grateful.
So my question is, How do I get an ItemListener to get the chouice from the JComboBox and then do something with that.
Thanks for your time.
The ActionListener should do it...check out http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutor.../combobox.html for a tutorial that includes using listeners with comboboxes. Hope that helps, if not, come back and let me know.
