    Java: How to make "pull-down" button?

    Do any of you know how to make this sort of button (attached below) in Java? It's a button with an arrow next to it, which, when clicked on, offers other options. And I don't use GUI builder, so just don't tell me to drag and drop the appropriate control.

    Thanks.

    Your screen shot is of eclipse, which uses SWT. I don't know if Swing or AWT have the same widget or not. Anyway, in SWT you can control the style of the button by specifying the style in the constructor. Look at the constants in org.eclipse.swt.SWT.

    Oh, no. SWT is that powerful?! I couldn't get SWT to work so went with Swing instead. Oh well, is not really need anyway.

    Thanks, though.

    If you couldn't get SWT to work its probably because you were'nt useing "-cp <stuff>;/path/to/swt.jar"
