Hi all,
Need some help for creating a resizable JPopupMenu.
Just like any JFrame user should be able to drag JPopupMenu for resizing.

might be easier to popup a small JDialog, with border only (no titlebar),
then add the same/similar functionality as that of a JPopupMenu

Hi Michael,
Thanks alot for this solution. I've used this at one place but now i need to add a JPopup for hint of JTextField.
Problem with JDialog is, it opens new window on taskbar which i dont want. Is there any way to make the parent component of JPopup menu, resizable runtime?

On Windows a JDialog does not show up on the task bar. Maybe its different for other OS.

You can try using a JWindow instead of a JDialog.
