hi,
I am new to java and am developing an application . I need suggestions to implement the requirement below.
The application will have a combo box ( CB1) with 3 choices A , B and C. Another combobox (CB2) in the same frame has to reflect the choice selected in CB1. I.e for example if A is selected in CB1 then CB2 has to display D , E , F ..... if B is selected then CB2 has to display G, H and I .....
Please guide me to the solution.
Hoping to hear a solution as quickly as possible.
Thank you.
regards,
ganesh.

1. Create CB1 and CB2

2. Add data to CB1 and addActionListener
if action is happened in CB1 , then create data for add to CB2


this code will help you...

String data[] = { "trans" , "ind" , "cap" };
JComboBox CB2 = new JComboBox(data_a);
public void init()
