You are using a JComboList?

check the reference: javax.swing.JComboBox[^]

There is a function getSelectedIndex() which returns an integer value. You sure know what to do with that.

Or - and that's the better method - you use the getSelecetedItem() which hands back any kind of Object. Background is that you can put Objects in the Combobox. For displaying a correct String in the Combobox the Object needs to implement the function public String toString().

decide what you need - pushing a String into the JTextbox should not make Problems (otherwise -> JAVA Swing GUI Tutorial @[^] )
