I have to display a long messages in JComboBox and I do not want to increase the length of JComboBox.
I would like to keep the JComboBox length to standard length and when user clicks, I want to show the full length of the items in the drop down.
Thanks for the help
Sri

hi Sri Rangan
i don't know if this is the solution for your problem but
try JCombobox method setToolTipText() method
if you use this method when the mouse points the jcombobox item the full value will be shown.
