Hi All,
I have a small doubt in JComboBox. I want to add combo box to JPanel, here i am using BoxLayout to add combobox to the panel. here my doubt is that when i am maximise the frame, the combobox size automatically increasing in the panel , it occupies the entire panel, i don't how it is happening, it is the functionality of the JcomboBox ? please suggest me.

Thank You in Advance..

Hi Rob Camick,
you mentioned the comboBox.setMaximumSize(refComboBox.getPreferredSize()); method is not working ....

If you need further help then you need to create a SSCCE (Short, Self Contained, Compilable and Executable, Example Program), that demonstrates the incorrect behaviour.

Don't forget to use the Code Formatting Tags so the posted code retains its original formatting. That is done by selecting the code and then clicking on the "Code" button above the question input area.

I have a doubt also.

can you read english?

in your numerous posts, you have been repeatedly asked to post a compilable program,
so we can see 'exactly' what you are doing, and can test possible solutions.

just posting snippets creates a '20 guesses' scenario, which most won't play.

so, if you really want a solution, read the link (provided 20 or so times in the past),
and post a small program that we can copy/paste/compile/run and see the problem for ourselves

(my crystal ball says it's gunna be 2000 lines)
