Greetings all,

I am designing a Swing form based on an XML Schema where almost all the elements have one particular boolean attribute that must be associated with them.

I noticed that placing checkboxes next to every field has cluttered my form. I want to address this in another way, but am not sure how to elegantly solve this problem.

Also, I have to use JTables to display some grouped elements, and the attribute checkboxes take up additional cells, making it inevitable that the table is too long horizontally. this makes it so that the user of my form must scroll back and forth in those sections with JTables.

Does someone know of a good solution to this? Has anyone run across this problem?

Can you post a link to a picture of your gui or can you send it to me?
