Topics in this Chapter
Table Editing Overview
How the Editing Process Works
Using Buttons and Combo Boxes as Editors
Tabbing Between Editable Cells
All the tables that you have seen so far in this book have displayed static data. However,
JTable allows the user to edit the table data if the underlying table model permits it. In this chapter, you'll see how to turn a read-only table into an editable one by using the editors that are installed by default in every table. You'll also see how to enhance your tables beyond the capabilities of the default editors by creating editors of your own and how to add useful mechanisms like the ability to use the
tab key to move between cells while editing.
