Menu Choice()

I'm new to Java and making Applets and right now I have a choice() menu drop down menu that i'm using.

How can I make it so that when I choose Cat from the drop down, it displays a picture of a Cat? or if I choose do, it shows a picture of a Dog?

Instead of menu.addItem("Cat") you would use something like this:

If you have lots of menu items then there are ways to make the code more compact, but this approach should get you going.
