hi ...
i have a form that has a table...
i wanted to add scroll bars to that table but i don't really know how to do it.
can someone help me please??
this is my code for creating the table :
final String[] colName = { "CPR", "Name", "Address", "Phone", "Sex", "Date OF Birth" };
TableModel pageModel = new AbstractTableModel()
{
public int getColumnCount()
{
return tableData[0].length;
} //getColumnCount
public int getRowCount()
{
return tableData.length;
} //getRowCount
public Object getValueAt(int row, int col)
{
return tableData[row][col];
} //getValueAt
public String getColumnName(int column)
{
return colName[column];
} //getcolName
public Class getColumnClass(int col)
{
return getValueAt(0, col).getClass();
} //getColumnClass
public boolean isCellEditable(int row, int col)
{
return false;
} //isCellEditable
public void setValueAt(String aValue, int row, int column)
{
tableData[row][column] = aValue;
} //setValueAt
}; //pageModel
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
//Create the JTable from the table model:
dataTable = new JTable(pageModel);
//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
if (scrollpane != null)
{
scrollpane.setVisible(false);
scrollpane = null;
} //if
scrollpane = new JScrollPane(dataTable);
scrollpane.setVisible(true);
if (inputPanel == null)
makeGUI();
customerPanel.add(scrollpane, BorderLayout.SOUTH);
c.add(tabs);
id.grabFocus();
pack();
repaint();
adupdateTable();
} //try
catch (Exception e)
{
System.out.println("Caught updateTable exception: " + e);
} //catch
} //updatetable
thankxx

What exactly is the problem, is the scrollbar not showing up correctly or not at all. I seem to recall that tables do funny things with JScrollPanes, something to do with the size of one or the other not being determined correctly. Unfortunately, I can't be of much real help right now but maybe that will give you an idea of something to look at for the source of the problem, I know I saw it disussed in a thread on this forum within the last few month.

the problem is that the scroll bar is not showing at all.. so when i add users to the table they will be added but because there are many data in the tables so i will not be able to see but has been added it goes below the page,,,
is my code correct?

Can you post the code where you are adding new data to the table? I didn't see anything in the code you posted that would prevent the scrollbars from showing up.

hi ,,,
this is the code for the add button:
public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e)
{
FileInputStream fis = null;
if (e.getSource() == add) //The ADD button.
{
//User has not populated all the input fields.
if(name.getText().equals("")|| address.getText().equals("")|| phone.getText().equals("")|| sex.getText().equals("")|| dob.getText().equals("")|| photo.getText().equals(""))
{
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Please fill in all the fields","Missing Fields",JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);
}
else
{
// save the new customer:
try
{
//1. take the customer's data and photo:
int userId= Integer.parseInt(id.getText());
String userName = name.getText();
String userAddress = address.getText();
String userPhone = phone.getText();
String userSex = sex.getText();
String userDateBirth = dob.getText();
String photoName = photo.getText();
File file = new File(photoName);
int fileLength = (int)file.length();
//2. Set the user's photo into the photoHolder:
photoHolder.setVisible(false);
photoHolder = null;
comments.setVisible(false);
comments = null;
Icon[] custPhotos = {new ImageIcon(photoName)};
JList photosList = new JList(custPhotos);
photosList.setFixedCellHeight(100);
photosList.setFixedCellWidth(80);
photoHolder = new JPanel();
photoHolder.add(photosList);
makeComments();
//3. Insert the data and photo into the database:
if(fileLength > 0)
{
fis = new FileInputStream(file);
String query = " INSERT INTO CUSTOMER VALUES('"+userId+"', '"+ userName+ "', '"+ userAddress+ "', " +" '"+ userPhone+ "', '"+ userSex+ "', '"+ userDateBirth+ "', ? ) ";
PreparedStatement pstmt = conn.prepareStatement(query);
pstmt.setBinaryStream(1, fis, fileLength);
pstmt.executeUpdate();
comments.setText(userName+", added.");
}
else
{
String query = " INSERT INTO CUSTOMER (id, name, address, phone, sex, dob) VALUES('"+userId+"', '"+userName+"', '"+userAddress+"', '"+userPhone+"', '"+userSex+"', '"+userDateBirth+"') ";
stat.executeUpdate(query);
comments.setText("Customer saved without a photo.");
}
backPanel.add(photoHolder);
backPanel.add(comments);
updateTable();
} //try
catch (Exception ee)
{
//The danger of putting creating the JOptionPane in here is that it will show the same message regardless of the error.
JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, "Customers CPR already exits!!Please enter another CPR","Invalid",JOptionPane.INFORMATION_MESSAGE);
System.out.println("Caught exception in add action: " + ee);
} //catch
} //if
}//add button
