I have a JTable whose values gets filled only dynamically.
At times, when the table is empty, I want to show a message like
"no records found" just under the table header.
Just like how in windows machine, when you make a search and if it doesnt
return any records, it prints "Search is complete. There are no results to display"
(stretching many columns) under the table header. I considered using JLabel
(as shown below) but there is always some space b/w the two components.
Let me know ur suggestions. Until then, lemme try out other Layout managers.
Just a code snippet:

First, I suggest you to use a TableModel (e.g. AbstractTableModel) to separate data from the GUI.

You can temporarily add the label to the table:



Then when you start adding data to the table you would need to remove the label from the table.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
