Hi,
I need to have a JComboBox in this fashion. On selecting the drop down,

checkbox1 text1
checkbox2 text2
.
.
.
checkboxn textn


should be displayed.

Iam very new to Swing/Awt UI stuff and I figured out that I need to add a component inside the JCombobox I create. I Don't know if I can achieve this by adding a JCheckBox component or I need to create a JPanel for this.

I have created many JCheckBox components and tried to add it and display but nothing was visible inside the JComboBox I created. I don't know how to change the default renderer for the JComboBox and make it render this kind of JComboBox.

Please take a look at the code I have written.


Any Help would be deeply appreciated and please forgive me if my code was dumb.

Thanks Craig.
You have made me watch the climax. I'll have to find out how exactly the renderer is working. :roll:
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
