I am ot sure what are you asking but may be the following exception helps you.
I think you want to disble the column drag property of the table. See if you want to drag a table first you need to select it and then onle you can drag it.
So why dot you try to disable the selection of the column using the following function:
void setColumnSelectionAllowed(boolean flag)

Hope this helps.

cheers,

You didn't understand point. The user drags the column by clicking on the column header and dragging mouse. Then the user can release the mouse and the column order changes, i.e. the column is dragged to another place.

Try it using JTable and you'll understand how columns can be dragged.

This question isn't about column selection, it's about column DRAGGING. Please, try a simple example and you'll see how the user can drag a column from one place to another. What does it have to do with column selection?

Column reordering is a behavior implemented by JTableHeader. Try this:

    JTable table = <your table>;
    table.getTableHeader().setReorderingAllowed(false);

Best regards,
