The JTable is used to display and edit regular two-dimensional tables of cells. See How to Use Tables in The Java Tutorial for task-oriented documentation and examples of using JTable.

The JTable has many facilities that make it possible to customize its rendering and editing but provides defaults for these features so that simple tables can be set up easily. For example, to set up a table with 10 rows and 10 columns of numbers:

     TableModel dataModel = new AbstractTableModel() {
         public int getColumnCount() { return 10; }
         public int getRowCount() { return 10;}
         public Object getValueAt(int row, int col) { return new Integer(row*col); }
     };
     JTable table = new JTable(dataModel);
     JScrollPane scrollpane = new JScrollPane(table);

{@code JTable}s are typically placed inside of a {@code JScrollPane}. By default, a {@code JTable} will adjust its width such that a horizontal scrollbar is unnecessary. To allow for a horizontal scrollbar, invoke #setAutoResizeMode with {@code AUTO_RESIZE_OFF}. Note that if you wish to use a JTable in a standalone view (outside of a JScrollPane) and want the header displayed, you can get it using #getTableHeader and display it separately.

To enable sorting and filtering of rows, use a {@code RowSorter}. You can set up a row sorter in either of two ways:

When designing applications that use the JTable it is worth paying close attention to the data structures that will represent the table's data. The DefaultTableModel is a model implementation that uses a Vector of Vectors of Objects to store the cell values. As well as copying the data from an application into the DefaultTableModel, it is also possible to wrap the data in the methods of the TableModel interface so that the data can be passed to the JTable directly, as in the example above. This often results in more efficient applications because the model is free to choose the internal representation that best suits the data. A good rule of thumb for deciding whether to use the AbstractTableModel or the DefaultTableModel is to use the AbstractTableModel as the base class for creating subclasses and the DefaultTableModel when subclassing is not required.

The "TableExample" directory in the demo area of the source distribution gives a number of complete examples of JTable usage, covering how the JTable can be used to provide an editable view of data taken from a database and how to modify the columns in the display to use specialized renderers and editors.

The JTable uses integers exclusively to refer to both the rows and the columns of the model that it displays. The JTable simply takes a tabular range of cells and uses getValueAt(int, int) to retrieve the values from the model during painting. It is important to remember that the column and row indexes returned by various JTable methods are in terms of the JTable (the view) and are not necessarily the same indexes used by the model.

By default, columns may be rearranged in the JTable so that the view's columns appear in a different order to the columns in the model. This does not affect the implementation of the model at all: when the columns are reordered, the JTable maintains the new order of the columns internally and converts its column indices before querying the model.

So, when writing a TableModel, it is not necessary to listen for column reordering events as the model will be queried in its own coordinate system regardless of what is happening in the view. In the examples area there is a demonstration of a sorting algorithm making use of exactly this technique to interpose yet another coordinate system where the order of the rows is changed, rather than the order of the columns.

Similarly when using the sorting and filtering functionality provided by RowSorter the underlying TableModel does not need to know how to do sorting, rather RowSorter will handle it. Coordinate conversions will be necessary when using the row based methods of JTable with the underlying TableModel. All of JTables row based methods are in terms of the RowSorter, which is not necessarily the same as that of the underlying TableModel. For example, the selection is always in terms of JTable so that when using RowSorter you will need to convert using convertRowIndexToView or convertRowIndexToModel. The following shows how to convert coordinates from JTable to that of the underlying model:

  int[] selection = table.getSelectedRows();
  for (int i = 0; i < selection.length; i++) {
    selection[i] = table.convertRowIndexToModel(selection[i]);
  }
  // selection is now in terms of the underlying TableModel

By default if sorting is enabled JTable will persist the selection and variable row heights in terms of the model on sorting. For example if row 0, in terms of the underlying model, is currently selected, after the sort row 0, in terms of the underlying model will be selected. Visually the selection may change, but in terms of the underlying model it will remain the same. The one exception to that is if the model index is no longer visible or was removed. For example, if row 0 in terms of model was filtered out the selection will be empty after the sort.

J2SE 5 adds methods to JTable to provide convenient access to some common printing needs. Simple new #print() methods allow for quick and easy addition of printing support to your application. In addition, a new #getPrintable method is available for more advanced printing needs.

As for all JComponent classes, you can use InputMap and ActionMap to associate an Action object with a KeyStroke and execute the action under specified conditions.

Constructor:
 public JTable() 
 public JTable(TableModel dm) 
    Constructs a JTable that is initialized with dm as the data model, a default column model, and a default selection model.
 public JTable(TableModel dm,
    TableColumnModel cm) 
    Constructs a JTable that is initialized with dm as the data model, cm as the column model, and a default selection model.
 public JTable(int numRows,
    int numColumns) 
 public JTable(Vector rowData,
    Vector columnNames) 
    Constructs a JTable to display the values in the Vector of Vectors, rowData, with column names, columnNames. The Vectors contained in rowData should contain the values for that row. In other words, the value of the cell at row 1, column 5 can be obtained with the following code:

    ((Vector)rowData.elementAt(1)).elementAt(5);

    Parameters:
    rowData - the data for the new table
    columnNames - names of each column
 public JTable(Object[][] rowData,
    Object[] columnNames) 
    Constructs a JTable to display the values in the two dimensional array, rowData, with column names, columnNames. rowData is an array of rows, so the value of the cell at row 1, column 5 can be obtained with the following code:

     rowData[1][5]; 

    All rows must be of the same length as columnNames.

    Parameters:
    rowData - the data for the new table
    columnNames - names of each column
 public JTable(TableModel dm,
    TableColumnModel cm,
    ListSelectionModel sm) 
    Constructs a JTable that is initialized with dm as the data model, cm as the column model, and sm as the selection model. If any of the parameters are null this method will initialize the table with the corresponding default model. The autoCreateColumnsFromModel flag is set to false if cm is non-null, otherwise it is set to true and the column model is populated with suitable TableColumns for the columns in dm.

Method from javax.swing.JTable Detail:
 public  void addColumn(TableColumn aColumn) 
    Appends aColumn to the end of the array of columns held by this JTable's column model. If the column name of aColumn is null, sets the column name of aColumn to the name returned by getModel().getColumnName().

    To add a column to this JTable to display the modelColumn'th column of data in the model with a given width, cellRenderer, and cellEditor you can use:

    
         addColumn(new TableColumn(modelColumn, width, cellRenderer, cellEditor));
    
     
    [Any of the TableColumn constructors can be used instead of this one.] The model column number is stored inside the TableColumn and is used during rendering and editing to locate the appropriates data values in the model. The model column number does not change when columns are reordered in the view.
 public  void addColumnSelectionInterval(int index0,
    int index1) 
    Adds the columns from index0 to index1, inclusive, to the current selection.
 public  void addNotify() 
    Calls the configureEnclosingScrollPane method.
 public  void addRowSelectionInterval(int index0,
    int index1) 
    Adds the rows from index0 to index1, inclusive, to the current selection.
 public  void changeSelection(int rowIndex,
    int columnIndex,
    boolean toggle,
    boolean extend) 
    Updates the selection models of the table, depending on the state of the two flags: toggle and extend. Most changes to the selection that are the result of keyboard or mouse events received by the UI are channeled through this method so that the behavior may be overridden by a subclass. Some UIs may need more functionality than this method provides, such as when manipulating the lead for discontiguous selection, and may not call into this method for some selection changes.

    This implementation uses the following conventions:

    • toggle: false, extend: false. Clear the previous selection and ensure the new cell is selected.
    • toggle: false, extend: true. Extend the previous selection from the anchor to the specified cell, clearing all other selections.
    • toggle: true, extend: false. If the specified cell is selected, deselect it. If it is not selected, select it.
    • toggle: true, extend: true. Apply the selection state of the anchor to all cells between it and the specified cell.
 public  void clearSelection() 
    Deselects all selected columns and rows.
 public  void columnAdded(TableColumnModelEvent e) 
    Invoked when a column is added to the table column model.

    Application code will not use these methods explicitly, they are used internally by JTable.

  void compWriteObjectNotify() 
 protected  void configureEnclosingScrollPane() 
    If this JTable is the viewportView of an enclosing JScrollPane (the usual situation), configure this ScrollPane by, amongst other things, installing the table's tableHeader as the columnHeaderView of the scroll pane. When a JTable is added to a JScrollPane in the usual way, using new JScrollPane(myTable), addNotify is called in the JTable (when the table is added to the viewport). JTable's addNotify method in turn calls this method, which is protected so that this default installation procedure can be overridden by a subclass.
 public int convertColumnIndexToModel(int viewColumnIndex) 
    Maps the index of the column in the view at viewColumnIndex to the index of the column in the table model. Returns the index of the corresponding column in the model. If viewColumnIndex is less than zero, returns viewColumnIndex.
 public int convertColumnIndexToView(int modelColumnIndex) 
    Maps the index of the column in the table model at modelColumnIndex to the index of the column in the view. Returns the index of the corresponding column in the view; returns -1 if this column is not being displayed. If modelColumnIndex is less than zero, returns modelColumnIndex.
 public int convertRowIndexToModel(int viewRowIndex) 
    Maps the index of the row in terms of the view to the underlying TableModel. If the contents of the model are not sorted the model and view indices are the same.
 public int convertRowIndexToView(int modelRowIndex) 
    Maps the index of the row in terms of the TableModel to the view. If the contents of the model are not sorted the model and view indices are the same.

    Returns the default column model object, which is a DefaultTableColumnModel. A subclass can override this method to return a different column model object.
 public  void createDefaultColumnsFromModel() 
    Creates default columns for the table from the data model using the getColumnCount method defined in the TableModel interface.

    Clears any existing columns before creating the new columns based on information from the model.

 protected TableModel createDefaultDataModel() 
    Returns the default table model object, which is a DefaultTableModel. A subclass can override this method to return a different table model object.
 protected  void createDefaultEditors()

 public static JScrollPane createScrollPaneForTable(JTable aTable) 
Deprecated! As - of Swing version 1.0.2, replaced by new JScrollPane(aTable).

    Equivalent to new JScrollPane(aTable).
 public  void doLayout() 
    Causes this table to lay out its rows and columns. Overridden so that columns can be resized to accomodate a change in the size of a containing parent. Resizes one or more of the columns in the table so that the total width of all of this JTable's columns is equal to the width of the table.

    Before the layout begins the method gets the resizingColumn of the tableHeader. When the method is called as a result of the resizing of an enclosing window, the resizingColumn is null. This means that resizing has taken place "outside" the JTable and the change - or "delta" - should be distributed to all of the columns regardless of this JTable's automatic resize mode.

    If the resizingColumn is not null, it is one of the columns in the table that has changed size rather than the table itself. In this case the auto-resize modes govern the way the extra (or deficit) space is distributed amongst the available columns.

    The modes are:

    • AUTO_RESIZE_OFF: Don't automatically adjust the column's widths at all. Use a horizontal scrollbar to accomodate the columns when their sum exceeds the width of the Viewport. If the JTable is not enclosed in a JScrollPane this may leave parts of the table invisible.
    • AUTO_RESIZE_NEXT_COLUMN: Use just the column after the resizing column. This results in the "boundary" or divider between adjacent cells being independently adjustable.
    • AUTO_RESIZE_SUBSEQUENT_COLUMNS: Use all columns after the one being adjusted to absorb the changes. This is the default behavior.
    • AUTO_RESIZE_LAST_COLUMN: Automatically adjust the size of the last column only. If the bounds of the last column prevent the desired size from being allocated, set the width of the last column to the appropriate limit and make no further adjustments.
    • AUTO_RESIZE_ALL_COLUMNS: Spread the delta amongst all the columns in the JTable, including the one that is being adjusted.

    Note: When a JTable makes adjustments to the widths of the columns it respects their minimum and maximum values absolutely. It is therefore possible that, even after this method is called, the total width of the columns is still not equal to the width of the table. When this happens the JTable does not put itself in AUTO_RESIZE_OFF mode to bring up a scroll bar, or break other commitments of its current auto-resize mode -- instead it allows its bounds to be set larger (or smaller) than the total of the column minimum or maximum, meaning, either that there will not be enough room to display all of the columns, or that the columns will not fill the JTable's bounds. These respectively, result in the clipping of some columns or an area being painted in the JTable's background color during painting.

    The mechanism for distributing the delta amongst the available columns is provided in a private method in the JTable class:

      adjustSizes(long targetSize, final Resizable3 r, boolean inverse)
    
    an explanation of which is provided in the following section. Resizable3 is a private interface that allows any data structure containing a collection of elements with a size, preferred size, maximum size and minimum size to have its elements manipulated by the algorithm.

    Distributing the delta

    Overview

    Call "DELTA" the difference between the target size and the sum of the preferred sizes of the elements in r. The individual sizes are calculated by taking the original preferred sizes and adding a share of the DELTA - that share being based on how far each preferred size is from its limiting bound (minimum or maximum).

    Definition

    Call the individual constraints min[i], max[i], and pref[i].

    Call their respective sums: MIN, MAX, and PREF.

    Each new size will be calculated using:

             size[i] = pref[i] + delta[i]
    
    where each individual delta[i] is calculated according to:

    If (DELTA < 0) we are in shrink mode where:

                           DELTA
             delta[i] = ------------ * (pref[i] - min[i])
                        (PREF - MIN)
    
    If (DELTA > 0) we are in expand mode where:

                           DELTA
             delta[i] = ------------ * (max[i] - pref[i])
                         (MAX - PREF)
    

    The overall effect is that the total size moves that same percentage, k, towards the total minimum or maximum and that percentage guarantees accomodation of the required space, DELTA.

    Details

    Naive evaluation of the formulae presented here would be subject to the aggregated rounding errors caused by doing this operation in finite precision (using ints). To deal with this, the multiplying factor above, is constantly recalculated and this takes account of the rounding errors in the previous iterations. The result is an algorithm that produces a set of integers whose values exactly sum to the supplied targetSize, and does so by spreading the rounding errors evenly over the given elements.

    When the MAX and MIN bounds are hit

    When targetSize is outside the [MIN, MAX] range, the algorithm sets all sizes to their appropriate limiting value (maximum or minimum).

 DropLocation dropLocationForPoint(Point p) 
    Calculates a drop location in this component, representing where a drop at the given point should insert data.
 public boolean editCellAt(int row,
    int column) 
    Programmatically starts editing the cell at row and column, if those indices are in the valid range, and the cell at those indices is editable. Note that this is a convenience method for editCellAt(int, int, null).
 public boolean editCellAt(int row,
    int column,
    EventObject e) 
    Programmatically starts editing the cell at row and column, if those indices are in the valid range, and the cell at those indices is editable. To prevent the JTable from editing a particular table, column or cell value, return false from the isCellEditable method in the TableModel interface.
 public  void editingCanceled(ChangeEvent e) 
    Invoked when editing is canceled. The editor object is discarded and the cell is rendered once again.

    Application code will not use these methods explicitly, they are used internally by JTable.

 public  void editingStopped(ChangeEvent e) 
    Invoked when editing is finished. The changes are saved and the editor is discarded.

    Application code will not use these methods explicitly, they are used internally by JTable.

 public AccessibleContext getAccessibleContext() 
    Gets the AccessibleContext associated with this JTable. For tables, the AccessibleContext takes the form of an AccessibleJTable. A new AccessibleJTable instance is created if necessary.
 public boolean getAutoCreateColumnsFromModel() 
    Determines whether the table will create default columns from the model. If true, setModel will clear any existing columns and create new columns from the new model. Also, if the event in the tableChanged notification specifies that the entire table changed, then the columns will be rebuilt. The default is true.
 public boolean getAutoCreateRowSorter() 
    Returns {@code true} if whenever the model changes, a new {@code RowSorter} should be created and installed as the table's sorter; otherwise, returns {@code false}.
 public int getAutoResizeMode() 
    Returns the auto resize mode of the table. The default mode is AUTO_RESIZE_SUBSEQUENT_COLUMNS.
 public TableCellEditor getCellEditor() 
    Returns the active cell editor, which is {@code null} if the table is not currently editing.
 public TableCellEditor getCellEditor(int row,
    int column) 
    Returns an appropriate editor for the cell specified by row and column. If the TableColumn for this column has a non-null editor, returns that. If not, finds the class of the data in this column (using getColumnClass) and returns the default editor for this type of data.

    Note: Throughout the table package, the internal implementations always use this method to provide editors so that this default behavior can be safely overridden by a subclass.

 public Rectangle getCellRect(int row,
    int column,
    boolean includeSpacing) 
    Returns a rectangle for the cell that lies at the intersection of row and column. If includeSpacing is true then the value returned has the full height and width of the row and column specified. If it is false, the returned rectangle is inset by the intercell spacing to return the true bounds of the rendering or editing component as it will be set during rendering.

    If the column index is valid but the row index is less than zero the method returns a rectangle with the y and height values set appropriately and the x and width values both set to zero. In general, when either the row or column indices indicate a cell outside the appropriate range, the method returns a rectangle depicting the closest edge of the closest cell that is within the table's range. When both row and column indices are out of range the returned rectangle covers the closest point of the closest cell.

    In all cases, calculations that use this method to calculate results along one axis will not fail because of anomalies in calculations along the other axis. When the cell is not valid the includeSpacing parameter is ignored.

 public TableCellRenderer getCellRenderer(int row,
    int column) 
    Returns an appropriate renderer for the cell specified by this row and column. If the TableColumn for this column has a non-null renderer, returns that. If not, finds the class of the data in this column (using getColumnClass) and returns the default renderer for this type of data.

    Note: Throughout the table package, the internal implementations always use this method to provide renderers so that this default behavior can be safely overridden by a subclass.

 public boolean getCellSelectionEnabled() 
    Returns true if both row and column selection models are enabled. Equivalent to getRowSelectionAllowed() && getColumnSelectionAllowed().
 public TableColumn getColumn(Object identifier) 
    Returns the TableColumn object for the column in the table whose identifier is equal to identifier, when compared using equals.
 public Class<?> getColumnClass(int column) 
    Returns the type of the column appearing in the view at column position column.
 public int getColumnCount() 
    Returns the number of columns in the column model. Note that this may be different from the number of columns in the table model.
 public TableColumnModel getColumnModel() 
    Returns the TableColumnModel that contains all column information of this table.
 public String getColumnName(int column) 
    Returns the name of the column appearing in the view at column position column.
 public boolean getColumnSelectionAllowed() 
    Returns true if columns can be selected.
 public TableCellEditor getDefaultEditor(Class<?> columnClass) 
    Returns the editor to be used when no editor has been set in a TableColumn. During the editing of cells the editor is fetched from a Hashtable of entries according to the class of the cells in the column. If there is no entry for this columnClass the method returns the entry for the most specific superclass. The JTable installs entries for Object, Number, and Boolean, all of which can be modified or replaced.
 public TableCellRenderer getDefaultRenderer(Class<?> columnClass) 
    Returns the cell renderer to be used when no renderer has been set in a TableColumn. During the rendering of cells the renderer is fetched from a Hashtable of entries according to the class of the cells in the column. If there is no entry for this columnClass the method returns the entry for the most specific superclass. The JTable installs entries for Object, Number, and Boolean, all of which can be modified or replaced.
 public boolean getDragEnabled() 
    Returns whether or not automatic drag handling is enabled.
 public final DropLocation getDropLocation() 
    Returns the location that this component should visually indicate as the drop location during a DnD operation over the component, or {@code null} if no location is to currently be shown.

    This method is not meant for querying the drop location from a {@code TransferHandler}, as the drop location is only set after the {@code TransferHandler}'s canImport has returned and has allowed for the location to be shown.

    When this property changes, a property change event with name "dropLocation" is fired by the component.

 public final DropMode getDropMode() 
    Returns the drop mode for this component.
 public int getEditingColumn() 
    Returns the index of the column that contains the cell currently being edited. If nothing is being edited, returns -1.
 public int getEditingRow() 
    Returns the index of the row that contains the cell currently being edited. If nothing is being edited, returns -1.
 public Component getEditorComponent() 
    Returns the component that is handling the editing session. If nothing is being edited, returns null.
 public boolean getFillsViewportHeight() 
    Returns whether or not this table is always made large enough to fill the height of an enclosing viewport.
 public Color getGridColor() 
    Returns the color used to draw grid lines. The default color is look and feel dependent.
 public Dimension getIntercellSpacing() 
    Returns the horizontal and vertical space between cells. The default spacing is look and feel dependent.
 public TableModel getModel() 
    Returns the TableModel that provides the data displayed by this JTable.
 public Dimension getPreferredScrollableViewportSize() 
    Returns the preferred size of the viewport for this table.
 public Printable getPrintable(PrintMode printMode,
    MessageFormat headerFormat,
    MessageFormat footerFormat) 
    Return a Printable for use in printing this JTable.

    This method is meant for those wishing to customize the default Printable implementation used by JTable's print methods. Developers wanting simply to print the table should use one of those methods directly.

    The Printable can be requested in one of two printing modes. In both modes, it spreads table rows naturally in sequence across multiple pages, fitting as many rows as possible per page. PrintMode.NORMAL specifies that the table be printed at its current size. In this mode, there may be a need to spread columns across pages in a similar manner to that of the rows. When the need arises, columns are distributed in an order consistent with the table's ComponentOrientation. PrintMode.FIT_WIDTH specifies that the output be scaled smaller, if necessary, to fit the table's entire width (and thereby all columns) on each page. Width and height are scaled equally, maintaining the aspect ratio of the output.

    The Printable heads the portion of table on each page with the appropriate section from the table's JTableHeader, if it has one.

    Header and footer text can be added to the output by providing MessageFormat arguments. The printing code requests Strings from the formats, providing a single item which may be included in the formatted string: an Integer representing the current page number.

    You are encouraged to read the documentation for MessageFormat as some characters, such as single-quote, are special and need to be escaped.

    Here's an example of creating a MessageFormat that can be used to print "Duke's Table: Page - " and the current page number:

        // notice the escaping of the single quote
        // notice how the page number is included with "{0}"
        MessageFormat format = new MessageFormat("Duke''s Table: Page - {0}");
    

    The Printable constrains what it draws to the printable area of each page that it prints. Under certain circumstances, it may find it impossible to fit all of a page's content into that area. In these cases the output may be clipped, but the implementation makes an effort to do something reasonable. Here are a few situations where this is known to occur, and how they may be handled by this particular implementation:

    • In any mode, when the header or footer text is too wide to fit completely in the printable area -- print as much of the text as possible starting from the beginning, as determined by the table's ComponentOrientation.
    • In any mode, when a row is too tall to fit in the printable area -- print the upper-most portion of the row and paint no lower border on the table.
    • In PrintMode.NORMAL when a column is too wide to fit in the printable area -- print the center portion of the column and leave the left and right borders off the table.

    It is entirely valid for this Printable to be wrapped inside another in order to create complex reports and documents. You may even request that different pages be rendered into different sized printable areas. The implementation must be prepared to handle this (possibly by doing its layout calculations on the fly). However, providing different heights to each page will likely not work well with PrintMode.NORMAL when it has to spread columns across pages.

    As far as customizing how the table looks in the printed result, JTable itself will take care of hiding the selection and focus during printing. For additional customizations, your renderers or painting code can customize the look based on the value of javax.swing.JComponent#isPaintingForPrint()

    Also, before calling this method you may wish to first modify the state of the table, such as to cancel cell editing or have the user size the table appropriately. However, you must not modify the state of the table after this Printable has been fetched (invalid modifications include changes in size or underlying data). The behavior of the returned Printable is undefined once the table has been changed.

 public int getRowCount() 
    Returns the number of rows that can be shown in the JTable, given unlimited space. If a RowSorter with a filter has been specified, the number of rows returned may differ from that of the underlying TableModel.
 public int getRowHeight() 
    Returns the height of a table row, in pixels.
 public int getRowHeight(int row) 
    Returns the height, in pixels, of the cells in row.
 public int getRowMargin() 
    Gets the amount of empty space, in pixels, between cells. Equivalent to: getIntercellSpacing().height.
 public boolean getRowSelectionAllowed() 
    Returns true if rows can be selected.
 public RowSorter<TableModel> getRowSorter() 
    Returns the object responsible for sorting.
 public int getScrollableBlockIncrement(Rectangle visibleRect,
    int orientation,
    int direction) 
    Returns visibleRect.height or visibleRect.width, depending on this table's orientation. Note that as of Swing 1.1.1 (Java 2 v 1.2.2) the value returned will ensure that the viewport is cleanly aligned on a row boundary.
 public boolean getScrollableTracksViewportHeight() 
    Returns {@code false} to indicate that the height of the viewport does not determine the height of the table, unless {@code getFillsViewportHeight} is {@code true} and the preferred height of the table is smaller than the viewport's height.
 public boolean getScrollableTracksViewportWidth() 
    Returns false if autoResizeMode is set to AUTO_RESIZE_OFF, which indicates that the width of the viewport does not determine the width of the table. Otherwise returns true.
 public int getScrollableUnitIncrement(Rectangle visibleRect,
    int orientation,
    int direction) 
    Returns the scroll increment (in pixels) that completely exposes one new row or column (depending on the orientation).

    This method is called each time the user requests a unit scroll.

 public int getSelectedColumn() 
    Returns the index of the first selected column, -1 if no column is selected.
 public int getSelectedColumnCount() 
    Returns the number of selected columns.
 public int[] getSelectedColumns() 
    Returns the indices of all selected columns.
 public int getSelectedRow() 
    Returns the index of the first selected row, -1 if no row is selected.
 public int getSelectedRowCount() 
    Returns the number of selected rows.
 public int[] getSelectedRows() 
    Returns the indices of all selected rows.
 public Color getSelectionBackground() 
    Returns the background color for selected cells.
 public Color getSelectionForeground() 
    Returns the foreground color for selected cells.
 public ListSelectionModel getSelectionModel() 
    Returns the ListSelectionModel that is used to maintain row selection state.
 public boolean getShowHorizontalLines() 
    Returns true if the table draws horizontal lines between cells, false if it doesn't. The default value is look and feel dependent.
 public boolean getShowVerticalLines() 
    Returns true if the table draws vertical lines between cells, false if it doesn't. The default value is look and feel dependent.
 public boolean getSurrendersFocusOnKeystroke() 
    Returns true if the editor should get the focus when keystrokes cause the editor to be activated
 public JTableHeader getTableHeader() 
    Returns the tableHeader used by this JTable.
 public String getToolTipText(MouseEvent event) 
    Overrides JComponent's getToolTipText method in order to allow the renderer's tips to be used if it has text set.

    Note: For JTable to properly display tooltips of its renderers JTable must be a registered component with the ToolTipManager. This is done automatically in initializeLocalVars, but if at a later point JTable is told setToolTipText(null) it will unregister the table component, and no tips from renderers will display anymore.

 public TableUI getUI() 
    Returns the L&F object that renders this component.
 public String getUIClassID() 
    Returns the suffix used to construct the name of the L&F class used to render this component.
 public boolean getUpdateSelectionOnSort() 
    Returns true if the selection should be updated after sorting.
 public Object getValueAt(int row,
    int column) 
    Returns the cell value at row and column.

    Note: The column is specified in the table view's display order, and not in the TableModel's column order. This is an important distinction because as the user rearranges the columns in the table, the column at a given index in the view will change. Meanwhile the user's actions never affect the model's column ordering.

 protected  void initializeLocalVars() 
    Initializes table properties to their default values.
 public boolean isCellEditable(int row,
    int column) 
    Returns true if the cell at row and column is editable. Otherwise, invoking setValueAt on the cell will have no effect.

    Note: The column is specified in the table view's display order, and not in the TableModel's column order. This is an important distinction because as the user rearranges the columns in the table, the column at a given index in the view will change. Meanwhile the user's actions never affect the model's column ordering.

 public boolean isCellSelected(int row,
    int column) 
    Returns true if the specified indices are in the valid range of rows and columns and the cell at the specified position is selected.
 public boolean isColumnSelected(int column) 
    Returns true if the specified index is in the valid range of columns, and the column at that index is selected.
 public boolean isEditing() 
    Returns true if a cell is being edited.
 public boolean isRowSelected(int row) 
    Returns true if the specified index is in the valid range of rows, and the row at that index is selected.
 public  void moveColumn(int column,
    int targetColumn) 
    Moves the column column to the position currently occupied by the column targetColumn in the view. The old column at targetColumn is shifted left or right to make room.
 protected String paramString() 
    Returns a string representation of this table. This method is intended to be used only for debugging purposes, and the content and format of the returned string may vary between implementations. The returned string may be empty but may not be null.
 public Component prepareEditor(TableCellEditor editor,
    int row,
    int column) 
    Prepares the editor by querying the data model for the value and selection state of the cell at row, column.

    Note: Throughout the table package, the internal implementations always use this method to prepare editors so that this default behavior can be safely overridden by a subclass.

 public Component prepareRenderer(TableCellRenderer renderer,
    int row,
    int column) 
    Prepares the renderer by querying the data model for the value and selection state of the cell at row, column. Returns the component (may be a Component or a JComponent) under the event location.

    During a printing operation, this method will configure the renderer without indicating selection or focus, to prevent them from appearing in the printed output. To do other customizations based on whether or not the table is being printed, you can check the value of javax.swing.JComponent#isPaintingForPrint() , either here or within custom renderers.

    Note: Throughout the table package, the internal implementations always use this method to prepare renderers so that this default behavior can be safely overridden by a subclass.

 public boolean print() throws PrinterException 
    A convenience method that displays a printing dialog, and then prints this JTable in mode PrintMode.FIT_WIDTH, with no header or footer text. A modal progress dialog, with an abort option, will be shown for the duration of printing.

    Note: In headless mode, no dialogs are shown and printing occurs on the default printer.

 public boolean print(PrintMode printMode) throws PrinterException 
    A convenience method that displays a printing dialog, and then prints this JTable in the given printing mode, with no header or footer text. A modal progress dialog, with an abort option, will be shown for the duration of printing.

    Note: In headless mode, no dialogs are shown and printing occurs on the default printer.

 public boolean print(PrintMode printMode,
    MessageFormat headerFormat,
    MessageFormat footerFormat) throws PrinterException 
    A convenience method that displays a printing dialog, and then prints this JTable in the given printing mode, with the specified header and footer text. A modal progress dialog, with an abort option, will be shown for the duration of printing.

    Note: In headless mode, no dialogs are shown and printing occurs on the default printer.

 public boolean print(PrintMode printMode,
    MessageFormat headerFormat,
    MessageFormat footerFormat,
    boolean showPrintDialog,
    PrintRequestAttributeSet attr,
    boolean interactive) throws PrinterException, HeadlessException 
    Prints this table, as specified by the fully featured print method, with the default printer specified as the print service.
 public boolean print(PrintMode printMode,
    MessageFormat headerFormat,
    MessageFormat footerFormat,
    boolean showPrintDialog,
    PrintRequestAttributeSet attr,
    boolean interactive,
    PrintService service) throws PrinterException, HeadlessException 
    Prints this JTable. Takes steps that the majority of developers would take in order to print a JTable. In short, it prepares the table, calls getPrintable to fetch an appropriate Printable, and then sends it to the printer.

    A boolean parameter allows you to specify whether or not a printing dialog is displayed to the user. When it is, the user may use the dialog to change the destination printer or printing attributes, or even to cancel the print. Another two parameters allow for a PrintService and printing attributes to be specified. These parameters can be used either to provide initial values for the print dialog, or to specify values when the dialog is not shown.

    A second boolean parameter allows you to specify whether or not to perform printing in an interactive mode. If true, a modal progress dialog, with an abort option, is displayed for the duration of printing . This dialog also prevents any user action which may affect the table. However, it can not prevent the table from being modified by code (for example, another thread that posts updates using SwingUtilities.invokeLater). It is therefore the responsibility of the developer to ensure that no other code modifies the table in any way during printing (invalid modifications include changes in: size, renderers, or underlying data). Printing behavior is undefined when the table is changed during printing.

    If false is specified for this parameter, no dialog will be displayed and printing will begin immediately on the event-dispatch thread. This blocks any other events, including repaints, from being processed until printing is complete. Although this effectively prevents the table from being changed, it doesn't provide a good user experience. For this reason, specifying false is only recommended when printing from an application with no visible GUI.

    Note: Attempting to show the printing dialog or run interactively, while in headless mode, will result in a HeadlessException.

    Before fetching the printable, this method will gracefully terminate editing, if necessary, to prevent an editor from showing in the printed result. Additionally, JTable will prepare its renderers during printing such that selection and focus are not indicated. As far as customizing further how the table looks in the printout, developers can provide custom renderers or paint code that conditionalize on the value of javax.swing.JComponent#isPaintingForPrint() .

    See #getPrintable for more description on how the table is printed.

    KeyEvent e,
    int condition,
    boolean pressed) 
 public  void removeColumn(TableColumn aColumn) 
    Removes aColumn from this JTable's array of columns. Note: this method does not remove the column of data from the model; it just removes the TableColumn that was responsible for displaying it.
 public  void removeColumnSelectionInterval(int index0,
    int index1) 
    Deselects the columns from index0 to index1, inclusive.
 public  void removeEditor() 
    Discards the editor object and frees the real estate it used for cell rendering.
 public  void removeNotify() 
    Calls the unconfigureEnclosingScrollPane method.
 public  void removeRowSelectionInterval(int index0,
    int index1) 
    Deselects the rows from index0 to index1, inclusive.
 protected  void resizeAndRepaint() 
    Equivalent to revalidate followed by repaint.
 public int rowAtPoint(Point point) 
    Returns the index of the row that point lies in, or -1 if the result is not in the range [0, getRowCount()-1].
 public  void selectAll() 
    Selects all rows, columns, and cells in the table.
 public  void setAutoCreateColumnsFromModel(boolean autoCreateColumnsFromModel) 
    Sets this table's autoCreateColumnsFromModel flag. This method calls createDefaultColumnsFromModel if autoCreateColumnsFromModel changes from false to true.
 public  void setAutoCreateRowSorter(boolean autoCreateRowSorter) 
    Specifies whether a {@code RowSorter} should be created for the table whenever its model changes.

    When {@code setAutoCreateRowSorter(true)} is invoked, a {@code TableRowSorter} is immediately created and installed on the table. While the {@code autoCreateRowSorter} property remains {@code true}, every time the model is changed, a new {@code TableRowSorter} is created and set as the table's row sorter.

 public  void setAutoResizeMode(int mode) 
    Sets the table's auto resize mode when the table is resized. For further information on how the different resize modes work, see #doLayout .
 public  void setCellEditor(TableCellEditor anEditor) 
    Sets the active cell editor.
 public  void setCellSelectionEnabled(boolean cellSelectionEnabled) 
    Sets whether this table allows both a column selection and a row selection to exist simultaneously. When set, the table treats the intersection of the row and column selection models as the selected cells. Override isCellSelected to change this default behavior. This method is equivalent to setting both the rowSelectionAllowed property and columnSelectionAllowed property of the columnModel to the supplied value.
 public  void setColumnModel(TableColumnModel columnModel) 
    Sets the column model for this table to newModel and registers for listener notifications from the new column model. Also sets the column model of the JTableHeader to columnModel.
 public  void setColumnSelectionAllowed(boolean columnSelectionAllowed) 
    Sets whether the columns in this model can be selected.
 public  void setColumnSelectionInterval(int index0,
    int index1) 
    Selects the columns from index0 to index1, inclusive.
 public  void setDefaultEditor(Class<?> columnClass,
    TableCellEditor editor) 
    Sets a default cell editor to be used if no editor has been set in a TableColumn. If no editing is required in a table, or a particular column in a table, uses the isCellEditable method in the TableModel interface to ensure that this JTable will not start an editor in these columns. If editor is null, removes the default editor for this column class.
 public  void setDefaultRenderer(Class<?> columnClass,
    TableCellRenderer renderer) 
    Sets a default cell renderer to be used if no renderer has been set in a TableColumn. If renderer is null, removes the default renderer for this column class.
 public  void setDragEnabled(boolean b) 
    Turns on or off automatic drag handling. In order to enable automatic drag handling, this property should be set to {@code true}, and the table's {@code TransferHandler} needs to be {@code non-null}. The default value of the {@code dragEnabled} property is {@code false}.

    The job of honoring this property, and recognizing a user drag gesture, lies with the look and feel implementation, and in particular, the table's {@code TableUI}. When automatic drag handling is enabled, most look and feels (including those that subclass {@code BasicLookAndFeel}) begin a drag and drop operation whenever the user presses the mouse button over an item (in single selection mode) or a selection (in other selection modes) and then moves the mouse a few pixels. Setting this property to {@code true} can therefore have a subtle effect on how selections behave.

    If a look and feel is used that ignores this property, you can still begin a drag and drop operation by calling {@code exportAsDrag} on the table's {@code TransferHandler}.

 Object setDropLocation(DropLocation location,
    Object state,
    boolean forDrop) 
    Called to set or clear the drop location during a DnD operation. In some cases, the component may need to use it's internal selection temporarily to indicate the drop location. To help facilitate this, this method returns and accepts as a parameter a state object. This state object can be used to store, and later restore, the selection state. Whatever this method returns will be passed back to it in future calls, as the state parameter. If it wants the DnD system to continue storing the same state, it must pass it back every time. Here's how this is used:

    Let's say that on the first call to this method the component decides to save some state (because it is about to use the selection to show a drop index). It can return a state object to the caller encapsulating any saved selection state. On a second call, let's say the drop location is being changed to something else. The component doesn't need to restore anything yet, so it simply passes back the same state object to have the DnD system continue storing it. Finally, let's say this method is messaged with null. This means DnD is finished with this component for now, meaning it should restore state. At this point, it can use the state parameter to restore said state, and of course return null since there's no longer anything to store.

 public final  void setDropMode(DropMode dropMode) 
    Sets the drop mode for this component. For backward compatibility, the default for this property is DropMode.USE_SELECTION. Usage of one of the other modes is recommended, however, for an improved user experience. DropMode.ON, for instance, offers similar behavior of showing items as selected, but does so without affecting the actual selection in the table.

    JTable supports the following drop modes:

    • DropMode.USE_SELECTION
    • DropMode.ON
    • DropMode.INSERT
    • DropMode.INSERT_ROWS
    • DropMode.INSERT_COLS
    • DropMode.ON_OR_INSERT
    • DropMode.ON_OR_INSERT_ROWS
    • DropMode.ON_OR_INSERT_COLS

    The drop mode is only meaningful if this component has a TransferHandler that accepts drops.

 public  void setEditingColumn(int aColumn) 
    Sets the editingColumn variable.
 public  void setEditingRow(int aRow) 
    Sets the editingRow variable.
 public  void setFillsViewportHeight(boolean fillsViewportHeight) 
    Sets whether or not this table is always made large enough to fill the height of an enclosing viewport. If the preferred height of the table is smaller than the viewport, then the table will be stretched to fill the viewport. In other words, this ensures the table is never smaller than the viewport. The default for this property is {@code false}.
 public  void setGridColor(Color gridColor) 
    Sets the color used to draw grid lines to gridColor and redisplays. The default color is look and feel dependent.
 public  void setIntercellSpacing(Dimension intercellSpacing) 
    Sets the rowMargin and the columnMargin -- the height and width of the space between cells -- to intercellSpacing.
 public  void setModel(TableModel dataModel) 
    Sets the data model for this table to newModel and registers with it for listener notifications from the new data model.
 public  void setPreferredScrollableViewportSize(Dimension size) 
    Sets the preferred size of the viewport for this table.
 public  void setRowHeight(int rowHeight) 
    Sets the height, in pixels, of all cells to rowHeight, revalidates, and repaints. The height of the cells will be equal to the row height minus the row margin.
 public  void setRowHeight(int row,
    int rowHeight) 
    Sets the height for row to rowHeight, revalidates, and repaints. The height of the cells in this row will be equal to the row height minus the row margin.
 public  void setRowMargin(int rowMargin) 
    Sets the amount of empty space between cells in adjacent rows.
 public  void setRowSelectionAllowed(boolean rowSelectionAllowed) 
    Sets whether the rows in this model can be selected.
 public  void setRowSelectionInterval(int index0,
    int index1) 
    Selects the rows from index0 to index1, inclusive.
 public  void setRowSorter(RowSorter<TableModel> sorter) 
    Sets the RowSorter. RowSorter is used to provide sorting and filtering to a JTable.

    This method clears the selection and resets any variable row heights.

    This method fires a PropertyChangeEvent when appropriate, with the property name "rowSorter". For backward-compatibility, this method fires an additional event with the property name "sorter".

    If the underlying model of the RowSorter differs from that of this JTable undefined behavior will result.

 public  void setSelectionBackground(Color selectionBackground) 
    Sets the background color for selected cells. Cell renderers can use this color to the fill selected cells.

    The default value of this property is defined by the look and feel implementation.

    This is a JavaBeans bound property.

 public  void setSelectionForeground(Color selectionForeground) 
    Sets the foreground color for selected cells. Cell renderers can use this color to render text and graphics for selected cells.

    The default value of this property is defined by the look and feel implementation.

    This is a JavaBeans bound property.

 public  void setSelectionMode(int selectionMode) 
    Sets the table's selection mode to allow only single selections, a single contiguous interval, or multiple intervals.

    Note: JTable provides all the methods for handling column and row selection. When setting states, such as setSelectionMode, it not only updates the mode for the row selection model but also sets similar values in the selection model of the columnModel. If you want to have the row and column selection models operating in different modes, set them both directly.

    Both the row and column selection models for JTable default to using a DefaultListSelectionModel so that JTable works the same way as the JList. See the setSelectionMode method in JList for details about the modes.

 public  void setSelectionModel(ListSelectionModel newModel) 
    Sets the row selection model for this table to newModel and registers for listener notifications from the new selection model.
 public  void setShowGrid(boolean showGrid) 
    Sets whether the table draws grid lines around cells. If showGrid is true it does; if it is false it doesn't. There is no getShowGrid method as this state is held in two variables -- showHorizontalLines and showVerticalLines -- each of which can be queried independently.
 public  void setShowHorizontalLines(boolean showHorizontalLines) 
    Sets whether the table draws horizontal lines between cells. If showHorizontalLines is true it does; if it is false it doesn't.
 public  void setShowVerticalLines(boolean showVerticalLines) 
    Sets whether the table draws vertical lines between cells. If showVerticalLines is true it does; if it is false it doesn't.
 public  void setSurrendersFocusOnKeystroke(boolean surrendersFocusOnKeystroke) 
    Sets whether editors in this JTable get the keyboard focus when an editor is activated as a result of the JTable forwarding keyboard events for a cell. By default, this property is false, and the JTable retains the focus unless the cell is clicked.
 public  void setTableHeader(JTableHeader tableHeader) 
    Sets the tableHeader working with this JTable to newHeader. It is legal to have a null tableHeader.
 public  void setUI(TableUI ui) 
    Sets the L&F object that renders this component and repaints.
  void setUIProperty(String propertyName,
    Object value) 
 public  void setUpdateSelectionOnSort(boolean update) 
    Specifies whether the selection should be updated after sorting. If true, on sorting the selection is reset such that the same rows, in terms of the model, remain selected. The default is true.
 public  void setValueAt(Object aValue,
    int row,
    int column) 
    Sets the value for the cell in the table model at row and column.

    Note: The column is specified in the table view's display order, and not in the TableModel's column order. This is an important distinction because as the user rearranges the columns in the table, the column at a given index in the view will change. Meanwhile the user's actions never affect the model's column ordering. aValue is the new value.

 public  void sizeColumnsToFit(boolean lastColumnOnly) 
Deprecated! As - of Swing version 1.0.3, replaced by doLayout().

    Sizes the table columns to fit the available space.
 public  void sizeColumnsToFit(int resizingColumn) 
    Obsolete as of Java 2 platform v1.4. Please use the doLayout() method instead.
 public  void sorterChanged(RowSorterEvent e) 
    RowSorterListener notification that the RowSorter has changed in some way.
 public  void tableChanged(TableModelEvent e) 
    Invoked when this table's TableModel generates a TableModelEvent. The TableModelEvent should be constructed in the coordinate system of the model; the appropriate mapping to the view coordinate system is performed by this JTable when it receives the event.

    Application code will not use these methods explicitly, they are used internally by JTable.

    Note that as of 1.3, this method clears the selection, if any.

 protected  void unconfigureEnclosingScrollPane() 
    Reverses the effect of configureEnclosingScrollPane by replacing the columnHeaderView of the enclosing scroll pane with null. JTable's removeNotify method calls this method, which is protected so that this default uninstallation procedure can be overridden by a subclass.
 public  void updateUI() 
    Notification from the UIManager that the L&F has changed. Replaces the current UI object with the latest version from the UIManager.
 public  void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) 
    Invoked when the row selection changes -- repaints to show the new selection.

    Application code will not use these methods explicitly, they are used internally by JTable.
