Hi there, I'm trying to get the value of the selected item in my comboxbox but I can't do it. I tried .getText but thats not a method of that class. Any help please?
Thanks

It's funny that you would use precisely these words:

... because the method you want is "getSelectedItem()".

Please do yourself a favor and bookmark this page. You can look up any class of interest and quickly find a list of all its methods. Take a few minutes and get familiar with how this documentation is laid out. Learning to use it well is important!
