Is this a com.jidesoft.combobox.DateComboBox?

The problem is that this and jaxax.swing.JComboBox are in a different inheritance hierarchy - so JComponent is the lowest class they both inherit from.

But, com.jidesoft.combobox.ListComboBox looks like it acts like a simple JComboBox. And both ListComboBox and DateComboBox inherit from com.jidesoft.combobox.AbstractComboBox, which contains the getSelectedItem() method.

So you should be able to do this:
