Hi,

I have a JTable which contains some rows of data, and is uneditable. When the user double-clicks or press Enter on a row, I would like to show him details of the data on that row.

My questions are:
1. How do I listen to a double-click mouse event on a row?
2. How do I listen to an Enter key event on a row?
3. When the Enter key is pressed on a row, how can I prevent the cell cursor from moving down to the next row. In other words, I want the row selection to be unaffected by the Enter key.
4. When the user presses the Tab key, I want the focus to shift to the next component (possibly a JButton), instead of just moving among the JTable cells.

>>1. How do I listen to a double-click mouse event on a row?
   table.addMouseListener(new java.awt.event.MouseAdapter() {

      public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e) {
            if (e.getClickCount() == 2) {
                   //mycode
           }

      }
    })

That works. How about keyboard events? I tried to add a key listener but it didn't work.

to be more specific, here is the code for double-click on the right button:

//....

int m = event.getModifiers();

  if(event.getClickCount() > 1 && (m & InputEvent.BUTTON1_MASK) != 0 ) {
       //handling code..
}

have you got the problem solved? the above code only handled double-click on the whole table, how do you do to bring up the details on a specific row?
