Hi all,
Actually I am using JTable. I want to show some alarm information through a JTable object. I want to set the background of individual cells corresponding to the alarm severity. Some information will also be stored on the foreground. That's why I want to set the background color of the individual cells .
Thanks in adv.

// Look hear an example that can set
// foreground color of a cell in red
// depending of YOUR_CONDITION
// in the same way you can change the background color

public class MyTableCellRenderer extends DefaultTableCellRenderer
{
      public Component getTableCellRendererComponent( JTable table,
                                               Object value,
                                               boolean isSelected,
                                               boolean hasFocus,
                                               int row,
                                               int column)      
      {
            JLabel normal = new JLabel( );
            JLabel extra = new JLabel( );
            extra.setForeground( Color.red );
            extra.setText( (String)value );
            normal.setText( (String)value );
            if ( YOUR_CONDITION )
            {
                  return extra;
            }
            else
            {
                  return normal;
            }
      }
}
