i am using JComboBox which have product name product image, to make it autocomplete i used below listener but name and image in drop down is not getting highlight :-

Please let me know if code is not complete to understand.

looks CaretPosition is not getting set properly due to image in JCombobox. Any idea how can i set Caret Position to correct index?

- no idea how Icon/ImageIcon(s) is/are ... , because there are three-four (correct) ways, leaving any guessing, comments

- I would not recommend to use KeyListener, KeyEvent for this job, nor for JTextComponents (derived Editor from JComboBox) every those event are manageable in DocumentListener, DocumentFilter

- start with AutoComplete JComboBox/JTextField or decorator/highlighter by SwingX

- with standard rendering as is described in Oracle tutorial aboout How to use ComboBoxes
