I'm having two problems with GUIKit, probably because I don't know a thing 
about Java, and if you know the solution to any of:

1 - I have 3 comboboxes, say A, B and C. Combobox A has a BindEvent 
(action): each item selected changes the list of items of combobox B. Now, 
combobox B (wich list of items depends on the item selected on A), also 
changes the items on combobox C through a BindEvent (action), the same way A 
does on B... This on the comboboxes, but the rest of the GUI doesn't work 
(loading of packages). It works if I put the BindEvent of B on another 
widget, like a button, so I would like to know if anyone knows a way to 
avoid using external widgets and to have the lists of items adjust itselves 
2 - Is possible to send to a notebook a Mathematica expression (with 
sub/superscripts, fractions, squareroots, etc...) from a widget? So far, the 
result I get is always a distorted form of the expression, with powers in 
different lines, fractions represented by a line of "---", etc.

Thank you for your help,
