You can listen for the KeyTyped event of the JTextField. And then use getText() to get the String typed. You can add a JComboBox and populate the entries to this drop down depending on your search criteria.

By the way- There's s Swing/AWT Forum where you can post queries related to Swing/AWT/JFace.

Use a DocumentListener so you are notified when any change is made to the Document (either insertions or deletions).
