JTable editing with double click + AbstractCellEditor

Hi,

I have a JTable, custom cell editors obtained extending AbstractCellEditor.
Everything work fine.
However, the editing starts after a single click on the cell, but I want the editing to start after DOUBLE click.
I've seen there's a nice method in DefaultCellEditor : setClickCountToStart(int), but of course nothing similar for AbstractCellEditor.

Is there a way to start editing after a double click?
Ok I can detect double clicking using mouseEvent and using editCellAt(int,int), but of course the editing starts after the first click....

Thanks in advance!

Reimplement the cell editor's isCellEditable method. The implementation from DefaultCellEditor.EditorDelegate, which is what's being used by DefaultCellEditor:
There's the click count you were talking about.

You're welcome. Did you know that you can find the source yourself? It's in a file called "src.zip" that's located inside the JDK main folder.
