Hello Ranchers,

Help me out with this small issue! How do you add items in combo box from back end? Its clear with list but i don't know the functions used for combo box! In list I used a vector and added elements to list by "listname.setListData(vectorname)" .. Can a combo box accept data from vector? If so what is the function to do that? Else what am I supposed to do to add items?

"listname.setListData(vectorname)" does not add items.
It displays a whole new set of data.
What exactly are you trying to do?
Add an item to the existing ones in the JComboBox or display a new data set?

A combo box can definitely "accept data" from a DefaultComboBoxModel, which is a lot like a Vector:

Well well .. I have another doubt! How do you check whether an item from a combo box is selected or not? Would like to know whether JComboBox.getSelectedItem() has been chosen or not? Must return a boolean variable.

If it is chosen, it has to be selected right?
So you take the selected item and compare it with your item and figure out the boolean.
There is no ready made method like myCombo.isSelected(Object myItem) which will return a boolean.
