Is it necessary to provide "No records found" type of message if criteria entered by user does not return any records? Or is it ok to just leave it as an empty table display.
In my current implementation, I don't really have a status type of panel. It's just mainly my JTable info at the top and then the search and book information below.
Thoughts???

Hi Terry,
I had a status bar at the bottom of my application window, and in that I displayed various messages as the application ran. If there were no matching records then I just displayed an empty table and put a message in the status bar stating that there were no matching records. I did not have a popup.
Regards, Andrew
