Hmmm, I am using JBuilder X and I am trying to create an event for a JComboBox that is in a JTabbedPane in a JApplet.  It doesn't seem to be able to catch the event for the JComboBox.  I can make and catch events for my JListBox.  Is there a special procedure that I must call or can I create a different event?  I was trying to create a caretPositionChanged event, but it doesn't seem to want to work in the applet.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

You will need to add an InputMethodListener to your JComboBox. Can you post some code?

In design view for the applet in JBuilder, select the JComboBox. To the right you have a tab with the properties of the combo, and there is also a tab named 'Events'.
Select that tab, and doubleclick in the field named 'actionPerformed' (at the top) and JBuilder will create the neccessary code for you, and place the cursor where the event is caught.

Hope it helps,

try adding your listener to the combobox editor.

>> I am trying to create an event for a JComboBox

yourComboBox.addActionListener( new ActionListener() {
      public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
           System.out.println("A new item is chosen in the combo box: " + yourComboBox.getModel().getSelectedItem() );
      }
});
