Would it be fair to guess that this "textbox" is a Swing JTextField? If it is, then you call "setText(value)" on it.

Anyway, let us know because answering questions based on guesswork is rather a waste of time. (That's why I just gave a short answer.) Then we can move the post to the correct forum -- this isn't the right forum, unless you want to tell us which "other API" you had in mind. And read our FAQ page TellTheDetails (follow that link) to see what other information you could provide.

Swing? Okay, let's move it to the Swing forum then.

And I added code tags to the post, so the code is more readable.

Also, don't use == to compare the contents of two String objects, use the String's equals() method instead.

Okay. So... what was your question again? You're iterating through a HashMap's entries, but what exactly do you want to do with them?

oo ok . thanks for that tip. well i put in a Jcombobox and and JtextField. so everytime i choose sumthing from the combobox i want the value to be seen in the textfield. for example, when i click switch name in the combobox, i want the textfield to show that value which is 1.3.6.1...(sorry cant remember the value) as i have put in the coding where switch name = 1.3.6.1.2.... so how should i do that sir?

There are two steps:

(1) Get the value from the map.

(2) Put it into the text field.

It isn't clear to me which of those two steps you are having trouble with; at any rate, iterating through the map shouldn't be required, so you could delete that code.

get the value from the map and put it in the textfield.. its like the user selects the choise from the Jcombobox and the value from the selection will appear in the textfield. example i have a bunch of value and key : router name =1.3.6.1.2.3.4 then switch name=1.2.3.4.5.3 then switch value=1.2.3.5.2.. therefore the user just need to choose the name list from the combobox list which are switch name, router name, switch value. then when they choose for example switch name the value "1.2.3.4.5.3" should appear at the textfield.

In that thread, you were given a link to a tutorial on Swing event listeners. Have you gone through the tutorial?

that's how it reads to me.
you need to explain what you tried, and how it wasn't successful.

Anne, can you please BeNice and KeepItDown? Darryl is just doing his job as Bartender, informing you of one of our FAQ entries and why we encourage people to follow it. There is no need to snap back at him, especially in upper case letters.
