Create popup window similar to menu or combo drop down
Posted on 2006-10-29
I am trying to create a window that behaves like a combo drop down or menu drop down. It needs to appear when the user clicks a button and disappear when (A) something in it is selected on it or (B) the user clicks on anything else.
(B) is the piece that is giving me trouble. I have added a focus listener and put a setVisible(false) if the window loses focus, so this works sometimes, but not if the user clicks on a component that is not focusable.
How can this be done? Please provide example code if possible.
