If the drop down menu going behind the JPanel or the info on the JPanel turning gray where the drop down menu opened? If it's the first one we will need to see some code. If it iis the second one all you have to do is refresh the JPanel via repaint or reintialize.

I've mentioned in your other Q that the problem is inconsistency between AWT and SWING components
