In order to add items to the JComboBox we are creating a string and adding the items through that. But how to add the items at Run Time. Please help me out it is very urgent

When you write
...we are creating a string and adding the items through that

Does the string get added to a JComboBox the moment after you type the code, or does it happen when you run the program?

Everything in Java happens at Run Time (as opposed to say VB which offers the dubious advantages of "Design Time")

The shorter answer for you is: The same way.

A more thoughtful answer: look in the API, under JComboBox, there is an addItem(Object obj) method, and remember that Strings are objects.
