JTable - Filtering

144 New Member
hi,

i read from the java.sun.com tutorial about JTable, and it says i can use the TableRowSorter, the method setFillsViewpor tHeight(boolean ) of JTable and some other methods. but it seems that the class and the method is not available. i use jre 5. is it because that class and method available in different version?

how can i accomplish filtering in jre 5?

thx

Upgrade to Java 1.6 for all those nice features; basically all you have to do is this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. yourTable.setAutoCreateRowSorter(true);
  2.  
and you get nice sorted tables according to a single column.

kind regards,

What sort of filtering? Either displaying a row or not type of filtering? If so, your
TableModel should be resposible for that. If not, I don't understand your question.

Sounds like to me your inner Java genie wants you to upgrade to 6 and use RowSorter. It has row filtering capabilities, too:

well, this is a task that is given to me, and i dunno if i may use the 6 version. so, i try to do it with Java 5 if it's possible.

i don't really know how the sorting and filtering JTable works in Java. in fact i never use that sorting and filtering feature. what i know is that

i need in my program like a searching feature. user type something in a textfield and if the user click a button, the table will only display rows that has what the user typed as a substring of a particular column (specified before by the user from a combo box).

hope someone could help.

thx

I consider that a not-so-wise decision; if you don't know whether or not A, assuming
'not-A' is as silly as assuming the opposite 'A'. Why not ask your teacher first?

You also haven't properly described your context. If the data is from a database, you could just do the filtering in a new query.

ok then, thx for your help.

Better upgrade to Java 1.6; it'll only cost you ten minutes or so.
