I have following data (String):

Course1: A1
Course1: A2
Course2: B1
Course2: B2
Course2: B3
Course2: B4
Course3: C1
Course3: C2

I'd like to create two JComboBox (JComboBox1, JComboBox2) so that JComboBox1 contains Course1,Course2,Course3, etc.

If I select, say, Course2 from JComboBox1 then corresponding B1,B2,B3,B4 should be populated in JComboBox2.

How to implement this? Many Thanks.



Yes, simply create a DefaultComboBoxModel for each set, and do setModel() on JComboBox2 when JComboBox1 changes.

Addendum: For example,

import java.awt.EventQueue;
import java.awt.event.ActionEvent;
import java.awt.event.ActionListener;
import javax.swing.ComboBoxModel;
import javax.swing.DefaultComboBoxModel;
import javax.swing.JComboBox;
import javax.swing.JFrame;
import javax.swing.JPanel;

public class ComboTest extends JPanel implements ActionListener, Runnable {

    private final JComboBox combo1 = new JComboBox(
        new String[]{"Course 1", "Course 2", "Course 3"});
    private final JComboBox combo2 = new JComboBox();
    private ComboBoxModel[] models = new ComboBoxModel[3];

    public ComboTest() {
        models[0] = new DefaultComboBoxModel(
            new String[]{"A1", "A2"});
        models[1] = new DefaultComboBoxModel(
            new String[]{"B1", "B2", "B3", "B4"});
        models[2] = new DefaultComboBoxModel(
            new String[]{"C1", "C2"});


    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
        int i = combo1.getSelectedIndex();

    public void run() {
        JFrame f = new JFrame("ComboTest");

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        EventQueue.invokeLater(new ComboTest());

You have to use fetchxml to get distinct values, that is the only option.

<fetch top="50" distinct="true" >
  <entity name="leadaddress" >
    <attribute name="stateorprovince" />
    <filter type="and" >
      <condition attribute="stateorprovince" operator="not-null" />

You can use web api endpoint and use the above fetchxml like below:<fetch top="50" distinct="true" >   <entity name="leadaddress" >     <attribute name="stateorprovince" />     <filter type="and" >       <condition attribute="stateorprovince" operator="not-null" />     </filter>   </entity> </fetch>

You have to complete all these steps:

  1. An entity must be Activities enabled for it to appear in the Regarding lookup. Enable a custom entity to appear in the Regarding lookup.

  2. An entity must also be enabled for Unified Interface for it to appear in the Regarding lookup. Read more.

  3. Open the App designer, Add > Entities and then select the entity you want to add and complete the addition by including all assets. Reference

Simply add an ActionListener to the combo box. When actionPerformed is called, you can look up the selected value and call what ever methods you need to.

For example:

chooser.addActionListener(new ActionListener() {
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent evt) {
        Object selectedValue = chooser.getSelectedValue();
        // carry on with what ever you need
