    Default JOptionPane with a comboBox with data read from a text file

    Good Day All,
    I have been tinkering with a swing application. I am able to read from the file fine, but I am having an issue getting the Object array to work the way I would like. I have experimented with placement and different code, but kind of stuck. Below is the code, including all of the commented out pieces I have tried. I can make it work if it is in the Swing form, but that won't work for my app. The process will allow me to select X number of ports which then starts a loop and will call this process based on the number of ports I need to configure.
    Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    My goal is to get a pop-up with a dropdown that allows me to select one of the many ports.

    Java Code:
    public static void serialLoopProcess(String serialDs1)
    		String subPort = ":1";
    		//Prompt user for search data
    		//String serialSearch = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null, "Please Select the Serial Port: ");
    		// Here is where we open the file and construct the combobox.
    		// Opening the file to read in the records for serial cards.
    		BufferedReader br = null;
    			boolean found = false;
    			// Reading in the file.
    			br = new BufferedReader(new FileReader("Cisco10K.txt"));
    			String serialPortline = null;
    			//Used to create a starting point for the counter. Counting serialCards in 
    			// serialCard.txt file
    			//int lineCount = 0;
    			while ((serialPortline = br.readLine()) != null)
    				//Getting the total number of records in the file.
    				//Learned that + "" is needed as int cannot be used in setText needs to be set to String.
    				//String totalRecords = (lineCount + "");
    				String[] serialCard = serialPortline.split(",");
    				// Println statement prints out a count of records in the text file serialCard.txt.
    				//Convert to integer the search value & arrays members. 
    				//int searchValue = Integer.parseInt(search);
    				//int recordCount = Integer.parseInt(totalRecords);
    				//String serialRecord = (String) line;
    				for (int i=0; i<serialCard.length; i++)
    					// Test println messages.
    					for (int oc12=1; oc12<=12; oc12++)
    					// Builds a new variable that includes serialPort and serialCard.
    					//String routerPort = new String(serialPort + serialCard[i]);
    					// This loops 28 times, the number of DS1's on a T3.
    						for (int counter=1; counter<=28; counter++)
    							// Prints out the combined variables to check format.
    							//System.out.println(serialCard[i] + oc12 + "/" + counter + subPort);
    							String ciscoCard = Integer.toString(oc12);
    							String ciscoDS1 = Integer.toString(counter);
    							//String ciscoSerial = serialCard[i].concat(ciscoCard);
    							String ciscoSerial = new String(serialCard[i] + ciscoCard + "/" + ciscoDS1 + subPort);
    							//Object[] ciscoSerial = {new String(serialCard[i] + ciscoCard + "/" + ciscoDS1 + subPort)};
    							//serialCombo.addItem(serialCard[i] + oc12 + "/" + counter + subPort);
    							Object[] elementValues = {ciscoSerial};
    							//Object elementValue = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null,"Choose the SerialPort", "Input",JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE, null,elementValues, elementValues);
    							//Object ciscoSerialValue = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null,"Choose the SerialPort", "Input",JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE, null,ciscoSerial, ciscoSerial);
    							//return ciscoSerial[0];	
    				} // END outter for loop for serialCard.
    				found = true;
    			} //END While
    	   		//Object ciscoSerialValue = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null,"Choose the SerialPort", "Input",JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE, null,ciscoSerial, ciscoSerial);
    			if (found == false)
    		   		JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Your search produced no results. Search Again", "No results found", JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);
    	   		} //END if
    	   	catch (FileNotFoundException ex)
    	    } //END 1st catch
    	   	catch (IOException e) 
    			// TODO Auto-generated catch block
    	    		if (br != null)
    	    	} //END try
    	    	catch (IOException ex) 
    	        } //END 3rd catch
    	      } //END finally
    	   		//return ciscoSerial;
    	   		//return elementValues;
    	   		//Object[] elementValues = {ciscoSerial};
    	   		//Object elementValue = JOptionPane.showInputDialog(null,"Choose the SerialPort", "Input",JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE, null,elementValues, elementValues);
    	   		//serialCombo.setToolTipText("Click to select 10K serial ports.");
