How to set blinking cursor to JCombobox while
clicking the JButton?
what are methods available for this?

I tried with focus methods which is available in the API.
But i couldn't. Using "TAB" key only i can change the focus of the component.But i want to focus the component by clicking the JButton.
kindly help me.

I am not sure if I follow your qstn, but I think
that adding an ActionListner to the JButton is one
way to go. The ActionListner should then Focus the
JComboBox.
Am I close?

HI,
I am not sure if your comboBox is editable or not but the following snippet should work.
