Hi!

My purpose is to fill the JComboBox from the database. The code shown below is working - it fills the JComboBox. However, the problem is that when I click on JComboBox to select some item, the error occurs. As I understand, String is casted to Object, and this is exactly the reason of the error. But I cannot find the way, in which my code must be changed to solve the problem. Please help me with some advices. Thanks!

The code:

Vector docTypes = new Vector();
        docTypes = SystClasses.Form.tableModel.returnDataFromSelectQuery("select doc_type from documents");

        cmbFormType = new JComboBox(docTypes);

...

  public Vector returnDataFromSelectQuery(String q) {
    cache = new Vector();
    String record = new String();
    try {
      ResultSet rs = statement.executeQuery(q);

      while (rs.next()) { 
        record = rs.getString(1);
        cache.addElement(record);
      }
    } catch (Exception e) {
      cache = new Vector(); // blank it out and keep going.
      e.printStackTrace();
    }
    return cache;
  }

The error message:

oh, you are right. I have an Object as a return value of getValueAt. Thank you very much. Just missed this point.
