Hey there!
In JTree or JList etc. I have a method like "getRowForLocation(int x, int y)" or "rowAtLocation(Point p)".
Do you know how to find out the row-for-location in a JComboBox?

Iam not sure I understood your question.
Are you trying to find out index of the element or a
element at a index in JComboBox?

Programming is Fun.

The methods e.getX() and e.getY() give me the current mouse position.
The method getRowForLocation(...) or rowAtLocation(...) give me the index of the row that the mouse cursor is over (not the selected row).
I agree. Here's the link:
