Hi All,
I am implementing TreeModel to buil a custom model to a JTree.
My problem is when a Edit the Model (add,remove,change value of a Node ) my Tree does no refresh to present the accurate data. I have seen lots of example on the web, but each time people are using DefaultMutableTree .. to perform editing operation. I am writing an xml Editor that uses a DOM parser to read the data into a DOM that I display using a JTree. Then I sue a SAX 2 parser to validate the data against a schema and display errors in a different rendering. Now I need to enable the user to edit the xml DOM Tree in order to correct the file.
Itried implementing a TreeModelListener class, but I have no idea of what kind of code should go into each method of the interface to get my tree updated.
I really need help quicklly and would be greatefull of example with code samples:I read a lot about the theory but still not getting there
Thanks.

Use any of the methods in DefaultTreeModel that work best for you:
nodeChanged(TreeNode node)
nodesChanged(TreeNode node, int[] childIndices)
nodeStructureChanged(TreeNode node)
nodesWereInserted(TreeNode node, int[] childIndices)
nodesWereRemoved(TreeNode node, int[] childIndices, Object[] removedChildren)
fireTreeNodesChanged(Object source, Object[] path,
int[] childIndices, Object[] children)
fireTreeNodesInserted(Object source, Object[] path, int[] childIndices, Object[] children)
fireTreeNodesRemoved(Object source, Object[] path, int[] childIndices, Object[] children)
fireTreeStructureChanged(Object source, Object[] path, int[] childIndices, Object[] children)

You ridiculous clown, did you think you could get away with it? This is my favorite tiny ad!
