This is really bad => How to add a combobox to an existing textfield dynamically
Joined: Mar 15, 2001
Hi I have designed a bean with a combination of labels and textfields . The value of the textfield is dependent on certain other attributes. So 1. If one of these other attributes is a string, the textfield should accept only strings 2. If one of these other attributes is an Integer, then the textfield should accept only integers. 3. If one of these other attibutes is a combobox, then a combobox with diff. choices should show up. How do I get the textfield to function this way. Please help. An example code would be great for understanding the concept. Thanks Meghna

What is often done, is that you put a "submit" button on your GUI. Then when the user is done with their input and clicks the button, you can edit the contents of each field and send back appropriate error messages. This method does not PREVENT the user from inputting incorrect stuff, but you just don't accept it.
