JTree as renderer of combobox

Hi,

I want to create a ComboBox that, when the down arrow is clicked, instead of a list coming up, a JTree comes up (generally it'll be just like a list, but sometimes things will be nested 1 level).

The user can choose a node in the JTree, and that becomes the selected item (showing up in the un-expanded combobox and, preferably, firing an even with it as the newly selected object).

Could somebody at least point me in the right direction of where to start?

You need to write your own ListCellRenderer. See API doc
