Hi,
I have a JTable with 5 columns. I want to restrict the size of the first 4 columns (done) and have the last one expand to fit the data in it, but I want the viewable area to remain the same and a horizontal scrollbar to appear at the bottom so that I can scroll along to look at the data in the last column. The table is updated regularly by the user. Can anyone help me with this??
Ta,
Malcolm

Set the width ( setMinimumWidth() ) on the column which you can get with table.getColumnModel().getColumn(column number). You may need to set the preferred width as well. And make sure you set resizing off table.setAutoResizeMode(JTable.AUTO_RESIZE_OFF)

Cheers Paul,
How about dynamically resizing the last column...?
