Hello
When I double click on a cell in my table, I can edit the data of that cell. Is there a way to prevent this?
Thanks

Hi,
yes, you can prevent the editing.
The TableModel interface declares a method "public boolean isCellEditable (int row, int col)". You can implement this method, and let it always return false:

Hope this helps.
