I have been looking for the past few days on how to use a lookup comboxbox.
By that I mean the combobox has a value and a discription. When the user picks from the combobox they see the discription but the value is stored
in the cell. I can get the combobox to display with the discription. But when not editing the column show the value not the discription.

I just cant seam to get the renderer to work

Any hints, examples or places to look?

Thanks

There obviously is a relation between the value and the description, and you can use this.

When creating the combo box, give it a renderer that displays the description:

Thanks

I thought I had tried what you suggested before - but I must have messed up something else at the same time .

Thanks again

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
