Display a different value than selected in JComboBox
Posted on 2004-08-19
Is it possible to have a JComboBox displaying text in a particular way in its 'list/menu part' but dislaying something different in the editor component?
What I want to have is a list of IDs and names but display only the name in the editor component.
For example I have these items in the combobox's list:
001 | Mr. Smith
002 | Mr. Collins
003 | Mrs. Bloom
If 002 is selected I want to display in the editor component only 'Mr. Collins' but not '002 | Mr. Collins'
