Hi all,

I have written a program with three combo boxes asking user to pick a date. I have one combo for day, one for month and one for year. My problem is that i have designed a for loop to make the numbers 1 to 31 appear in the combo box, although when you run the program you get a blank space where the number 1 should be. Is their way of setting the combo box so that one is shown first, instead of a blank box.

Program:

Any ideas ?

Thanks

Hi,

I looked it up and got it working. Never new about that specific method for JComboBox.

Many Thanks.
