Hi All,

Is there a way to display a time based(say for 3secs) custom generated information message on top of JTable whenever data is updated in the table.

Thanks,
Arun

You could create a JDialog (possibly through the JOptionPane class) for your message. Set a javax.swing.Timer to 3 seconds. When it fires, hide the dialog.

Hi Stephan,

can we use InternalFrame here rather than JOptionPane?....i want to display the popup message more as a customized message rather than standard defined dialogs from JOptionpane?

Thanks,
Arun

You can use JOptionPane for this as well. Just create a new JOptionPane and then treat it like you would treat the content pane of your custom window. When you're done, you can call createDialog() and it will create a JDialog out of your custom panel.

If you need more customization, you can also create a JDialog instance yourself directly. I would advise against the use of JInternalFrame, because it requires a JDesktopFrame to be displayed in.

Just pass a JPanel as the message parameter of JOptionPane's show... method.
