Hello,

I want to display values from my database in a JComboBox, where the item being displayed must be the name and the value of the item must be the Srno (primary key) .

Is there any way to display two values in JComboBox ( same as SELECT in HTML) where one being displayed and other being just the value.




Thanks in Advance
KAshwini
