I'm using the Swing1.02 JComboBox component setting its 'Editable' data member to true ('setEditable(true)').
As a result the user can insert free text, but whenever he's writing, the drop down button on the right is disappearing. After changing the focus to some other component the button re-appears.
I checked the SwingSet demo and over there the JComboBox appears as it should (always).
From the sources I could not find any differences between the SwingSet way of JComboBox usage and mine.
If anyone knows how I may ask the JComboBox component to show the dropdown button always, I would most appriciate it.
Thanks in advance,
