I was wondering if it was possible to add
multiple listeners to a JComboBox eg.
right now I have a ActionListener attached
to the JComboBox, but I want to add a
KeyListener to respond to both the up and
down key is this possible

John, I am fairly sure that this is possible. However, I have never done it.
Sorry if that doesn't help much, just wanted to give you a response though.

Happy Coding,

I am almost sure that this is not possible. I don't think that you (easily) get information about key stroke since some keys are reserved by the combo box (this is particulary the case for UP and DOWN). We are here more in the field of look-and-feel. Maybe you should have a look to the implementation of ComboBoxUI to see if the key events are consumed or not.

is there a way to block them (ie the up or down key)
because when the user presses the up or down key it interacts with the JComboBox and it crashes my programme
