hello friends
i want to have one JTable having 2 columns and number of rows. now in the first column i want to add JButtons and in the second there is going to be some text.
now i m not getting how to add Button to cell. what i tried thro' constructor was something like this.........
Object lb1 = new JButton("click......");
Object lb2 = new JButton("click......");
Object lb3 = new JButton("click......");
Object lb4 = new JButton("click......");
Object lb5 = new JButton("click......");

Object [][] data = {{lb1},{lb2},{lb3},{lb4},{lb5}};
Object [] value ={"label1","label2","label3","label4","label5"};

JFrame jf = new JFrame ();
jf.getContentPane().add(new JTable(data,value));
jf.setVisible(true);
................but its not showing JTable plus throwing Exception ArrayIndexOutOfBounds..........thx in advance...........Ajit B

First
Object [][] data = {{lb1},{lb2},{lb3},{lb4},{lb5}};
Object [] value ={"label1","label2","label3","label4","label5"};
Does not create 2 columns. You have 5 with none being text.
Object [][] data = {{lb1, "aaa"},{lb2,"bbb"},{lb3,"ccc"},{lb4,"ddd"},{lb5,"eee"}};
Object [] value ={"label1","label2};
That creates 2 columns. Here is a link that shows how to put buttons in a JTable. SwingExamples

Check the site I gave you (example 2). You need to create a renderer for the button. The default is JLabel. So you need your own.

thx paul..........
i hv created renderer for the Button........
it helped me.........the JButtons are visible but if i double click, Button disappers and it shows text in which all attributes of that particular button is shown.
i hv also checked the example u suggested . i guess i need to create editor for JButton......now in the said example to create editor it extends DefaultCellEditor........but i can't do this in case of JButton coz DefaultCellEditor constructor takes either JCheckBox, JComboBox or JTextField. There is no constructor which takes JButton as argument..........so my question is how will i create Editor for JButton?
or is there any other way to avoid disappearing of JButton when double clicked?
thx in advance.............Ajit B
