I have made a combo box but the length of characters dispalyed is longet the hieght I have set. I have no option to increase the height but the ComboBox only gets the vertical scrollbar and not the horizontal scrollbar. Is there a way out for the same so that a horizontal scrollbar appears.

Second if that is not possible(to set the horizontal scroll bar) then how to show a toop tip of a particular item in scroll bar so that it appears completely.

Hi  dumdum420,

     I think the following will be useful for you in setting the tool tip.

class test
{
  JComboBox comboBox = new JComboBox() ;

  public void test()
  {
    comboBox.addItemListener( new ItemListener()
      {
        public void itemStateChanged( ItemEvent ie )
        {
          String strComboItem = comboBox.getSeletedItem().toString() ;
          comboBox.setToolTipText( strComboItem ) ;
        }
      }
  }

}
