i have a gui that has a refresh menu item. it refreshes by resubmitting the query. my is problem is that once i refrsh, it changes the size of my columns to a chaaracter wide. any suggestions on how to keep my current column width even if the user resizes them.

Well what i feel is Dont add the Listbox directly to JPanel . Add it to JScrollPane and then add the JScrollPane to the JFrame or JPanel.
The size of ur listbox reamins static.and if the values are much longer than the size of the Listbox then automatically a scrollbar will come.

I had the same problem, and I resolved by calling the setAutoCreateColumnsFromModel(false). The default is to always create the columns from the model. So whenever the model changes, the columns get resized...
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
