removeColumn

public void removeColumn(TableColumn column)
Deletes the column from the tableColumns array. This method will do nothing if column is not in the table's columns list. tile is called to resize both the header and table views. This method also posts a columnRemoved event to its listeners.

moveColumn

public void moveColumn(int columnIndex,
                       int newIndex)
Moves the column and heading at columnIndex to newIndex. The old column at columnIndex will now be found at newIndex. The column that used to be at newIndex is shifted left or right to make room. This will not move any columns if columnIndex equals newIndex. This method also posts a columnMoved event to its listeners.

Specified by:
moveColumn in interface TableColumnModel
Parameters:
columnIndex - the index of column to be moved
newIndex - new index to move the column
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if column or newIndex are not in the valid range

setColumnMargin

public void setColumnMargin(int newMargin)
Sets the column margin to newMargin. This method also posts a columnMarginChanged event to its listeners.

Specified by:
setColumnMargin in interface TableColumnModel
Parameters:
newMargin - the new margin width, in pixels
See Also:
getColumnMargin(), getTotalColumnWidth()

getColumnCount

public int getColumnCount()
Returns the number of columns in the tableColumns array.

Specified by:
getColumnCount in interface TableColumnModel
Returns:
the number of columns in the tableColumns array
See Also:
getColumns()

getColumns

public Enumeration<TableColumn> getColumns()
Returns an Enumeration of all the columns in the model.

Specified by:
getColumns in interface TableColumnModel
Returns:
an Enumeration of the columns in the model

getColumnIndex

public int getColumnIndex(Object identifier)
Returns the index of the first column in the tableColumns array whose identifier is equal to identifier, when compared using equals.

Specified by:
getColumnIndex in interface TableColumnModel
Parameters:
identifier - the identifier object
Returns:
the index of the first column in the tableColumns array whose identifier is equal to identifier

public TableColumn getColumn(int columnIndex)
Returns the TableColumn object for the column at columnIndex.

Specified by:
getColumn in interface TableColumnModel
Parameters:
columnIndex - the index of the column desired
Returns:
the TableColumn object for the column at columnIndex

getColumnMargin

public int getColumnMargin()
Returns the width margin for TableColumn. The default columnMargin is 1.

Specified by:
getColumnMargin in interface TableColumnModel
Returns:
the maximum width for the TableColumn
See Also:
setColumnMargin(int)

getColumnIndexAtX

public int getColumnIndexAtX(int x)
Returns the index of the column that lies at position x, or -1 if no column covers this point. In keeping with Swing's separable model architecture, a TableColumnModel does not know how the table columns actually appear on screen. The visual presentation of the columns is the responsibility of the view/controller object using this model (typically JTable). The view/controller need not display the columns sequentially from left to right. For example, columns could be displayed from right to left to accomodate a locale preference or some columns might be hidden at the request of the user. Because the model does not know how the columns are laid out on screen, the given xPosition should not be considered to be a coordinate in 2D graphics space. Instead, it should be considered to be a width from the start of the first column in the model. If the column index for a given X coordinate in 2D space is required, JTable.columnAtPoint can be used instead.

Specified by:
getColumnIndexAtX in interface TableColumnModel
Parameters:
x - the horizontal location of interest
Returns:
the index of the column or -1 if no column is found
See Also:
JTable.columnAtPoint(java.awt.Point)

getTotalColumnWidth

public int getTotalColumnWidth()
Returns the total combined width of all columns.

Specified by:
getTotalColumnWidth in interface TableColumnModel
Returns:
the totalColumnWidth property

setSelectionModel

public void setSelectionModel(ListSelectionModel newModel)

Parameters:
newModel - the new selection model
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if newModel is null
See Also:
getSelectionModel()

getSelectionModel

public ListSelectionModel getSelectionModel()

getListeners

public <T extends EventListener> T[] getListeners(Class<T> listenerType)
Returns an array of all the objects currently registered as FooListeners upon this model. FooListeners are registered using the addFooListener method.

You can specify the listenerType argument with a class literal, such as FooListener.class. For example, you can query a DefaultTableColumnModel m for its column model listeners with the following code:

ColumnModelListener[] cmls = (ColumnModelListener[])(m.getListeners(ColumnModelListener.class));
If no such listeners exist, this method returns an empty array.

Parameters:
listenerType - the type of listeners requested; this parameter should specify an interface that descends from java.util.EventListener
Returns:
an array of all objects registered as FooListeners on this model, or an empty array if no such listeners have been added
Throws:
ClassCastException - if listenerType doesn't specify a class or interface that implements java.util.EventListener
