JTable ListSelectionListener

I have three JTables stacked one on the top of other. Only lower JTable has horizontal scroll bar and listener is attached to it. When this scroll bar is scrolled, the other two top tables scroll as well:

However, when I use arrow keys to move within the table the listener no longer works because I am not using scroll bar. Now I got another listener from sun's website that detects when table is being scrolled with arrow and I get the current column selected, but how do I apply this information to other two tables?

don't know if this will work in JTables, but worth a try
(the 'pad' part is just to trigger the horizontal scrollbar)

I agree. Here's the link:
