hello guys!

I'm a bit worried while adding a JButton with GIF inside of it directly to the JTable Cells....
The adding process seems no problem at all. The problem itself is at the Cell... The Image is not animating.

I dig it from other resources telling me that,
This is the Renderer problem, instead of the JButton Problem.

I tested already if My JButton with GIF placed outside of the JTable, the image animates perfectly.
But if i sent 'em to the JTable Cells... the animation failed.

Thus, I hope somebody could help me out of this matter.

Below I write out the code of my JTable

And my custom JTableRenderer;

And the code that I used for adding JButton into the JTable is written below (works well);

For the Preview-1 at first (before adding):

And the Preview-2 (after adding):

You could see Preview-2 is not animating.

Please go through the evaluation comments in this bug report which will help you understand the concept of a renderer and why your images aren't animated.

Maybe you could adapt the ideas in Animated Icon Node to use with a JTable in place of JTree. It looks doable to me.

edit Also, a table model shouldn't have to contain GUI components. The renderer and editor are responsible for providing the visual component; the model should hold only state (i.e. data).
