I have a JTable that I want to popup a menu by right clicking on a certain cell. I have created a PopupMenu class that takes a component argument, and that component gets the mouse listener in the PopupMenu class added to it. I also made a method to set the component in the PopupMenu class.
I create an instance of the PopupMenu class passing it a null for component.
Then after I've populated my table with data, I set the component in the PopupMenu class by calling the getTableCellRendererComponent() method in the selectTableRow() method (See below). However, the popup menu never comes up. Could someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
Here's some code I'm using:


Thanks for any help!

Have you tried setting the setLightWeightPopupEnabled(false)
for the JPopupMenu instance after creating the popup menu?
The default is true and may be behind your table.
popup.setLightWeightPopupEnabled(false);
