Hi,

How do I make an editable JCombobox behave like a JFormattedTextFiled with a Formatter (i.e. not allow certain characters such a commas and periods)?

Thanks,

You can use DocumentFilter on the strings that you want to input in your comboboxes

Thanks nesnemis,

I know how to add a DocumentFilter on a text field, but how do you add a FilterDocument to a JComboBox?

Nevermind, I figured it out.

JComboBox a = new JComboBox();
JTextField c = (JTextField)a.getEditor().getEditorComponent();
c.setDocument(...);

Thanks for the suggestion.
