Hi,
I have a doubt in JComboBox, i want to display JComboBox width size and and its contents width size must be the same, i am using setMinimumSize() and setPreferredSize(), it doesn't works, only height can be reflecting but not width, is there any alternate way to do this ? can you please help me. if i minimize the JComboBox width size means JPanel size is automatically shrinked.

Thanks in advance

We don't have enough information to suggest a solution. The problem may be related to the layout manager you are using.

For more more post your SSCCE that demonstrates the problem.

actually i have a main panel and have 3 sub panels, top panel covers the entire frame, left panel contains some components like JComboBox,radio buttons and some labels, the combobox takes large width when combobox popup data has a smaller text, the only reason for that it takes larger width for entire left panel,i am using setMinimumSize() and setPreferredSize() to reduce the size for combo boxes, the height will reflecting but not the width, my idea is if i reduce the combo box width, the left panel size is automatically shrinked, please give me any suggestion about this.

thanks in advance

> please give me any suggestion about this.

once again you've been told how to get a solution, by posting your code.
and, again, all you want to do is see everyone else's posted code.

I'm sure the problem is identifiable by all reading this thread,
but the exact solution requires you to post your code so we can see what
layoutManager you are using, and HOW you are using it.

why is it you cannot grasp this simple concept, which has been pointed out to you
numerous times in the past.

One of the reasons you should create a simple example, is you may find that in the simple example it works correctly. This will allow you to begin adding in application parts until you find what is actually causing the problem. It's a win-win scenario. Additionally, it provides you with an opportunity to improve your debugging skills.
 
Oh, sure, you could do that. Or you could eat some pie. While reading this tiny ad:
