Hi:

First of all I want to apologize if my post doesn't meet the forum standard (it is my first time)

I am working on a personal initiative to create a simple record keeper for my animals. I am almost done with the GUI but having issues adding a jTable into the last jPanel
GUI was done using NetBeans. Here is the code



In the attachment is an image of the actual GUI. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

PD SOrry the labels in the gui are in spanish but I dont think this will prevent anyone from helping.

Best Regards,

generally a JTable is added to a JScrollPane (so headers are shown).

you add the table via the scrollPane's constructor:
= new JScrollPane(table);//other constructors available

or by
scrollPane.setViewportView(table);

but *never* by
scrollpane.add(table);

then you add the scrollPane to the panel.

I don't use netbeans so can't advise on what to to there, or how to modify
the builder-generated GroupLayout code. if no-one comes along that uses
netbeans it might be worth a post in the netbeans forum (netbeans.org?)

Welcome to the Ranch
You didn’t format the code tags correctly, missing out the / from the second tag. but I have corrected that and you can see how much better the post looks
