    Question JComboBox and IF Statement

    Hello,

    I am new to Java, and have been trying to make a program for my college course. I have come to a bit of a dead end.

    I am trying to make a JComboBox that is linked to a If statement.

    e.g.

    I want to make a JComboBox with three options (Natural, Yorkstone and Clay) and then create an If statement for it like (pseudocode):

    if (JComboBox = Natural)
    type = 1;
    else if (JComboBox = Yorkstone);
    type = 2;
    else
    type = 3;


    Any ideas would be greatly appreceated.

    Thanks in advance.

    I haven't "linked" the if statement...

    .. to anything here, but this should work
    Code:
    JComboBox box=new JComboBox();
    .
    .
    box.addItem("Natural");
    box.addItem("Yorkstone");
    box.addItem("Clay");
    . 
    .
    if (box.getSelectedItem().equals("Natural")) 
      type=1;
    if (box.getSelectedItem().equals("Yorkstone")) 
      type=2;
    if (box.getSelectedItem().equals("Clay")) 
      type=3;
