Method Detail

getTableCellEditorComponent

Component getTableCellEditorComponent(JTable table,
                                      Object value,
                                      boolean isSelected,
                                      int row,
                                      int column)
Sets an initial value for the editor. This will cause the editor to stopEditing and lose any partially edited value if the editor is editing when this method is called.

Returns the component that should be added to the client's Component hierarchy. Once installed in the client's hierarchy this component will then be able to draw and receive user input.

Parameters:
table - the JTable that is asking the editor to edit; can be null
value - the value of the cell to be edited; it is up to the specific editor to interpret and draw the value. For example, if value is the string "true", it could be rendered as a string or it could be rendered as a check box that is checked. null is a valid value
isSelected - true if the cell is to be rendered with highlighting
row - the row of the cell being edited
column - the column of the cell being edited
Returns:
the component for editing
