Hi..

I am doing a small GUI application a movie ticket vending machine..

I have this combo box...Inside the combo box are 3 Movie titles..

I want my program to trigger when a user selects a movie my program should display an image...

To trigger im using a actionListner... Here are my codes below..I do not know why my image doesnt seem to change...

selectTitleList.addActionListener( new ActionListener() {
     public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
     
         String pic = selectTitleList.getSelectedItem() + ".jpg";
        displayTextPanel = new JPanel(new FlowLayout(FlowLayout.CENTER, 5, 1));
        imageLabel1 = new JLabel(new ImageIcon(pic));
        displayTextPanel.add(imageLabel1);
        bookingDisplayArea = new JTextArea(12,50);
        displayTextPanel.add(bookingDisplayArea);      
                                                     
        }
});

replace those lines with:

       imageLabel1.setIcon(new ImageIcon(pic));
       displayTextPanel.setText("");

displayTextPanel is visible in your Frame, Dialog, Panel (or someother Container)?
