On the code below in the getValueAt function, when I compile I am getting the following error for the case 2 & 3 & 4,
i.e.
incompatible types:
found: double
required: java.language.Object
case 2: return row.m_last;
^
anyone have any ideas?
Thanks ahead of time.
Dean

Hi Dean,
Your problem is that a primitive value can't be automatically converted into an Object. Your method must return an Object yet you are telling it to return primitives with Case 2, 3, and 4.
To fix the problem you could just use a wrapper class to get an object. For example:
case 2: return( new Double( row.m_last ) );
Then you will need to either use the wrapper object in the calling method or you must get the primitive back out. To get the above value back out use:
double d = returnedValue.doubleValue();
Regards,
Manfred.
