i hava a frame with a refresh button. refresh simply resubmits the current query and updates the table with new info if it is available. well..., my refresh button works, except when i refresh, my columns got to a smaller widht that may be one character long. and if i submit a query the data on the table doesn't change. it leaves all of the data, but because my first query was the default that gets eveything, it only makes those in the new query available to view it's info on the textarea on the other side of my split pane. any suggestions how i can get this info to look and work correctly.

I know how you can fix the column problem. Basically, the first time you update the table the column widths are adjusted correctly, but any subsequent update to the table resizes the columns to the uncorrect width, right?
So, here's what you do:
after you update your table model with new data, immediately do the following...
for( int i = 0; i < table.getColumnCount(); i++)
table.sizeColumnsToFit( i);

You may have to initialize your table with a call to the following...
table.setAutoResizeMode( JTable.AUTO_RESIZE_ALL_COLUMNS);
Let me know if that works, email me, I dont check this board much anymore
I agree. Here's the link:
