JComboBox in JMenu for font selection.

I'm working on an application where the user may want to frequently change fonts.  I would LIKE to simply include a JComboBox dropdown in my JMenu.  Is there any way I can stick a JComboBox into the menubar?   Or will I be forced to use a popup or a seperate item elswhere in the frame.

Thanks,

Donald HInes

I don't see the point of using a JComboBox in a JMenu.
You can simply use MenuItems to add a second-level menu.
Something like View/Font/ and there you put the different fonts you would have put in the JComboBox.
You can use radio buttons for the different fonts, so only one will be selectable and you'll have a nice little bullit in front of the one that is currently selected.
And you can use a JComboBox in a JToolbar.

I wanted a JComboBox because it allows the user to simply type in a fontname if they wished instead of scrolling through a long list.  BUT I suppose most users are going to scroll anyway.   I'll either use a submenu or try out the JToolbar.  
Thank you for the help.
