Hello all and thanks in advance.

I am trying to print a jTable, it seems there is a simple command
JTable.print(), if my table is called jTable1 then
jTable1.print(); should do it.

compiler does not agree and says cannot resolve symbol method. I have import
javax.swing.table.*; which should be sufficient to provide this method. No
doubt there is something terribly complicated that I am missing.

Cheers,

Jacques

That's a 1.5 method. What version are you using? If you are
compiling on the command line, you can type:

$javac -J-version

$java -version

Ah Ha I see, I am using SDK 1.4 for my applets. Is there a print method for 1.4?

The ability to print tables was introduced in Java 1.5. There is nothing corresponding to it in Java 1.4. However, I am sure that if you search the web you can find some code that will print your table under Java 1.4.

I've worked with a comercial package that prints tables under both Java 1.4 and 1.5, although it does not work in applets (only applications). Its called the "Java Print Dialog Framework".
