Cell editors bigger than the Cell ?

Dear Swing lovers,
Does anyone know if it is possible to define a CellEditor in a JTable that has bigger dimensions then its enclosing JTable-cell?
I would like create a table which contains a combo-box as a cell. Most of the items in the combo are longer than the cell, so you need to resize all the time, in order to read the cell.
Since the resizing is not always possible and i have a limited size for the table, is it possible to achieve a CellEditor, larger than the cell?
Any help is welcome.
Thank you in advance!
I agree. Here's the link:
