      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      Hi

        From where I am coming from:
      In netbeans 6.0 there is option to configure multiple run/debug configs
      but the run button in UI does not show the names of all configs much like
      eclipse ...The reason - there is no single component in swing which can
      be used to make it look seamless and not ugly.

      Reference : Eclipse Run/Debug Button.

      Request: Create a new component much like a button BUT with additional
      component (like a dropdown/combobox,down arrow -> on clicking shows some
      details] embedded AS PART of component.

      I know as a workaround, we can just place a combobox next to button, but
      it does not look nice.

      PLEASE CONSIDER THIS .

      JUSTIFICATION :

      Explained above

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -

      A single component ( some sort of dropdown embedded as part of a button)
      ACTUAL -

      Right now no embedded component is possible as part of button.
      Need to place a dropdown next to button

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :

      Right now no embedded component is possible as part of button.
      Need to place a dropdown next to button

      Does not look nice.
