I have a JTable. When a row is clicked on I want to be able to get the value of column "A". This works. The problem occurs when the user moves the column "A" around, such that the order would be "B", "C", "A", "D". I tried this :

table.getValueAt(table.getSelectedRow(),
table.getColumn("A").getModelIndex());
The problem is that the model index for "A" is always 0.
table.getValue at appears to be using the column number to refer to how the columns appear on the screen.
How would I be able to get the value I want?
Any ideas?
