I have a JDialog with a JComboBox on it. The first time a open the form all is fine. All subsequent times, the comboBox can be expanded, but I can't click on any of the items. However, the keyboard can select an item. I have other comboboxes that work fine, but their lists are hard-coded. This combobox gets its values from the db.
Anyone seen this?
(jdk 1.4.X)

setPreferredSize() didn't actually fix my problem. I did find a workaround though... I'm reusing the JDialog in question. On the close of the window, I call dispose(). It fixes my problem (my combo is now 'clickable') and it never actually releases the form back to memory. I verified this with JProfiler. Strange side effect!
