Hi.
My Problem is.
I have a JTable with 2 columns ( Rows can be 1-10 depending upon the size of
input vector)
I have provided two button in my Frame
1)Update Row
2) Update whole Table.
Now i want I want that if a user makes a change in any cell say cell( row
3,Col 1) ;and moves to next row , then the color (background/foreground) of
that cell should change to any other color .Again if he presses any of the
button then the default color of the cell should be restored.Basically i
want to indicate the user that he has made changes in the cell and he needs
to press the button for updation
Now i have wriiten code as
protected JTable rationalDescTable = new JTable(myModel) { public TableCellEditor getCellEditor(int row, int col) { if (edited)//boolean checks is someone has edited the cell or not { return new DefaultCellEditor(new JTextField()) { public Component getTableCellEditorComponent(JTable table,Object value,boolean isSelected,int row,int column) { super.getTableCellEditorComponent(table, value, isSelected,row, column);JTextField textField = (JTextField)super.getTableCellEditorComponent(table, value, isSelected, row, column); rationalDescTable.changeSelection(row,column,false,false);textField.setBackground(Color.red);textField.getCaret().setSelectionVisible(true);textField.setFont(new Font("SansSerif",Font.ITALIC,12));textField.setSelectionColor(Color.red); // Option return textField;} }; } else { return new DefaultCellEditor(new JTextField()) { public Component getTableCellEditorComponent(JTable table,Object value,boolean isSelected,int row,int column) { super.getTableCellEditorComponent(table, value, isSelected,row, column);JTextField textField = (JTextField)super.getTableCellEditorComponent(table, value, isSelected, row, column); rationalDescTable.changeSelection(row,column,false,false);textField.setBackground(Color.blue);textField.setForeground(Color.white);//textField.selectAll();//textField.setFont(new Font("SansSerif",Font.ITALIC,12));textField.getCaret().setSelectionVisible(true);textField.setSelectionColor(Color.blue);return textField; } }; } }

but the problem is that when i click the button the backgrounnd of cell is not changed from red to blue.In the action listener events of button i have made edited as false.
