Hi friends
I have two JTables. The first one has 7 columns and 10 rows (with data) but the second one is empty.
The user can choose one row from first table and by pressing the ((copy)) button , copy that row to the second table. Is it possible to change the color of those rows(in the first table) that been copied to the second table. I mean if the user choose a row and copy then to the second table, the color of this row wold be changed.
Can anybody help me with that??

You'll have to use a custom TableCellRenderer, and the data in your table model will in some way have to reflect the fact that this row was "copied". How are you currently handling the data in the TableModels?
