Need help with JCOMBOBOX
Hello to all!
I need your help with JcomboBox, while setting files in it.
Examine following code:
File file_list = getFileList();
JComboBox box = new JComboBox(file_list);
JFrame frame = new JFrame();
Assume getFileList() is a function that returns an list of files residing in a specific directory and cannot be changed.
Above code displays a frame with a combo box where I can choose between all the files.
My problem is the files are shown with their full path (for example c:\documents and settings\administrator\.....) which could be very long and pointless since they're all in the same directory.
I want to see only the file name.
Said that there are 2 ways to fix the above code.
Values in combobox should still be files, meaning I will be able to do:
File f = (File)box.getSelectedValue();
I have searched many forums, books but still not find any solution.
Will very much appreciate your help!
