How i achieve this thing in java (How to open drop down help)
You can listen for the KeyTyped event of the JTextField. And then use getText() to get the String typed. You can add a JComboBox and populate the entries to this drop down depending on your search criteria.
By the way- There's s Swing/AWT Forum where you can post queries related to Swing/AWT/JFace.
