I'm trying to build a dynamic JTable to display the results of a SQL/JDBC Query. After I do the query I get the column names returned. But how do I create the table header dynamically using the resulting column names?
Thanks,
Gary

Welcome to the Ranch! We don't have too many rules here but you did manage to violate two of them! But don't worry, we are pretty easy on you greenhorns.
Two rules...
1) please do not cross-post. Pick the most appropriate forum for your topic.
2) your name violates the JavaRanch naming standard. Please read this: http://www.javaranch.com/name.jsp and change your display name.
Thanks!
And enjoy your stay at the ranch!

Thomas & community,
I apologize for inadvertently breaking any rules. In my haste for an answer I have to admit that I did not read all of the fine print. I promise to abide by the rules and I have since changed my name profile to reflect guidelines.

It's not too tough and there are several ways to do it. Here's one:
TableColumnModel tcm = jTable.getColumnModel();
The TableColumnModel represents the form for every column in your table.
TableColumn tc = tcm.getColumn(0);
TableColumn represents the form for a particular column.
tc.setHeaderValue("My New Value");

Thanks for the quick response. This looks simple enough. I will analyze this for a better understanding.
