Hi,
I have a JPanel(parent) on which I am GridLayout. In my JPanel, I have two panels(child1,child2) added. Both these panels have a ComboBox. The actionListener causes the bigger panel to be repainted. Now, when if my child1.ComboBox has some item selected, how do I show it in the JComboBox next to the arrow. After a repaint, I am getting  a default value at the combo boxes.

Hi, You may use:

child1.setSelectedItem(obj);

When I do that, it initializes the action listener, and goes into an infinite loop. I want my combo boxes to save their status before a repaint, and show the item last selected.

thanks

i actually figured it out...first, remove the actionListeners, and then setSelectedItem. then add actionListeners again...
