Not Mac-specific, but some students are writing a project in which
users will have to pick a category for data they're entering. (These
are questions for a Quiz Bowl team, so basically we have to carve up
all of human knowledge into a reasonable ontology.)
Most categories have subcategories, and many subcategories have
subsubcategories. (Language Arts -> English Lit -> Poetry, or Language
Arts -> English Lit -> Drama, for example.)
I thought about something like a menu, but can you put a menu somewhere
in a Swing app outside the menu bar and, if so, should you?
Anyone have a UI suggestion? We're currently leaning toward a list of
combo boxes where setting the first changes the choices in the second,
and setting the second changes the choices in the third, etc.
Do not post admin requests to the list. They will be ignored.
