I have a requirement for my application. I need to display a timer inside the cell of JTable. The table will be displaying records of multiple users visiting the site. The column should display the total time spent on the page. I am using a customized Table Model. How can I go about it?

Hi Ajit,
Are you saying that you want the cell to display some kind of a countdown timer which keeps updating every second? If so, it might be a somewhat resource consuming application... because it would need a lot of repainting all the time. Of course, it should be possible with a custom Cell Renderer.
I will try to write a small example ASAP...
Best regards,
I agree. Here's the link:
