You first have to put your encapsulate your list in a objet of a class implementing ComboBoxModel and call the setModel method on the instance of JComboBox.

hi,
attach an item listener to the first combobox (displaying the languages). when the value gets changed it will call the itemchanged method. within this method you can reset the model of the second combo box. see the tutorial for detailed information (http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/).
