Hi,
I am working on creating a GUI in Java. In this GUI, I have a drop down list. I would like to get the selection from this list into a string.

This is the code snippet that I have in order to create this drop down list:


        
final Combo combo_workspaces = new Combo(shell, SWT.READ_ONLY);
.............
.........
//SOME MORE CODE IN HERE TO PREPARE THE CONTENT OF THIS COMBO.
.......
..............
combo_workspaces.setItems(workspacesArray.toArray(new String[workspacesArray.size()]));
        GridData data_comboWorkspaces = new GridData(GridData.FILL_HORIZONTAL);
        combo_workspaces.setLayoutData(data_comboWorkspaces); 

Open in new window




Can you please help me to get this selected value from the drop down list?
