Is there anyway to display a jcombobox in a jtable and still have it look exactly like a normal jcombobox.
The problem is my users won't know its a combobox if the arrow isn't there initially. Is there anyway to put an arrow there even if the user doesn't click on the box.

The cell may not be wide enough to show the arrow. Try expanding the width of your column with your mouse (move the header divider) and see if the down arrow shows up. If not, you may need to write a TableCellRenderer to extend JComboBox.

DefaultTableModel supports JComboBox just not the way I wanted, you were right, I had to create a CustomTableCellRenderer in order to do the job...Thanks!
