Hello,

I wanted to ask how to link JComboBox item with a webpage....to be more specific, say if i have inserted a drop-down menu bar in my GUI, so what i was thinking was how to open a webpage whose opening is triggered by the selection of an item of that drop-down menu bar.

It would be really helpful for you all to contribute useful answers..

Thanks.

Check out which listeners you can add to a JComboBox. Then choose the right one and use its events.

You can use java.awt.Desktop to open the URL in the default browser.
