With the GIU designer?

Is using the GIU designer worth it?

Thanks again

Ahhh....

for adding the items into the list, I'd do that in code...  Not sure you can do it in the designer (I know you can't in JBuilder)

Use the designer for putting things where you want them, then the code for filling them up :-)

- Select the combo box
- in the properties press the button besides the item "Model"
- the rest should be clear :)

Can java.awt.Choice elements have a model?

>> in the properties
I mean

In the properties window press the browse ("...") button that is located besides the item "model" (within the "Properties" node)

Sorry, that was for JComboBox not for AWT choice boxes.
I think you simply can't in netBeans.
You'll have to code it yourself:

Choice ColorChooser = new Choice();
ColorChooser.add("Green");
ColorChooser.add("Red");
ColorChooser.add("Blue");

Remark:

addItem is obsolete as of Java 2 platform v1.1. Please use the add() method instead.

If one was bent on using the GUI form designer (like me) they could just place the add statements to the post-init code as well. I just thought there would be a better way.
