Hello,

I am using nebeans and have built a gui. When I click on the drop down list it wil sometimes display underneath the buttons below it so you can't properly see the items in the list.

I know I can move the buttons or the drop down list but I like the current layout and that seems like a cop out anyways. I would really like the drop down list items to always display over top of the buttons.

I am hoping there is some setting I can use to make this happen. Please let me know.

Thanks

Hello Todd, and welcome to the Ranch! Have you been Mixing heavy and light components?

If that's not it, you'll need to post a SSCCE (Short, Self Contained, Compilable and Executable) example that demonstrates the problem before anyone can help you.

Do also note that this forum is for discussions regarding four GUI toolkits, so any question you ask needs to have enough detail so we know which you are working with. Also that a visual designer like the one that comes built in to NetBeans isn't a beginners' tool. To use it effectively, you need a fairly good understanding of Swing coding.
