It depends what rule you want to use to decide which cells are "disabled".

To "disable" the check box you could use the isCellEditable() method of the underlying TableModel. To change the color of the cells you create a custom cell renderer.

You could also use the custome cell renderer to disable the checkbox.

Can you tell me which cells you would want to disable in the column ?

You said above that you have a whole column that is boolean, are you saying that you want to diable all the cells in that column ?

Yes, what I want to know is what rule you will use to decide which of the cells in that column to disable and which ones not to disable.

suppose i have three columns
1. Name
2. age
3. Rights

if the age is less than 18 then i will disable the Rights cell for that record.
if not i will enable the column.

Here is an example using a table model to allow editing of cells based on the value of other cells in the same row.

import java.awt.*;
import java.util.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.table.*;

public class TableCellRenderingExample3 extends JFrame{

     Container contentPane;
     JTable table;
     JScrollPane scroller;
     Vector headers;
     Vector data;

     int rows = 100;

     public TableCellRenderingExample3(String args[]){
          super("TableCellRenderingExample");
          this.setDefaultCloseOperation(EXIT_ON_CLOSE);
          contentPane = this.getContentPane();
          contentPane.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
          if (args.length > 1){rows = Integer.parseInt(args[0]);}
          headers = buildHeaders();
          data = buildData(rows);
          SimpleTableModel stm = new SimpleTableModel(data,headers);
          table = new JTable(stm);
          scroller = new JScrollPane(table);
          contentPane.add(scroller,BorderLayout.CENTER);
     }

     public static void main(String args[]){
          TableCellRenderingExample3 tcre = new TableCellRenderingExample3(args);
          tcre.setSize(600,400);
          tcre.setVisible(true);
     }

     private Vector buildData(int rows){
          Vector v = new Vector();
          Vector r;
          for (int i = 0; i < rows; i++){
               r = new Vector();
               r.addElement("Name " + i);
               Integer age = new Integer((int)(Math.floor(Math.random() * (50 - 1)) + 1));
               r.addElement(age);
               Boolean rights = new Boolean((age.intValue() > 17) ? true : false);
               r.addElement(rights);
               v.addElement(r);
          }
          return v;
     }

     private Vector buildHeaders(){
          Vector v = new Vector();
          v.addElement(new String("Name"));
          v.addElement(new String("Age"));
          v.addElement(new String("Rights"));
          return v;
     }
}

class SimpleTableModel extends AbstractTableModel {

     private Vector dataVector;
     private Vector headingVector;

     public SimpleTableModel(Vector dataVector, Vector headingVector) {
          this.dataVector = dataVector;
          this.headingVector = headingVector;
     }

     public int getColumnCount() {
          return headingVector.size();
     }

     public int getRowCount() {
          return dataVector.size();
     }

     public Object getValueAt(int row, int col) {
        Vector rowVector = (Vector)dataVector.elementAt(row);
        return rowVector.elementAt(col);
     }

     public String getColumnName(int column) {
          return headingVector.elementAt(column).toString();
     }

     public Class getColumnClass(int c) {
          return getValueAt(0, c).getClass();
     }

     public boolean isCellEditable(int row, int col) {
          if (col == 2 && ((Integer)getValueAt(row,col-1)).intValue() < 18){
               return false;
          }else{
               return true;
          }
     }

     public void setValueAt(Object aValue, int row, int col) {
        Vector rowVector = (Vector)dataVector.elementAt(row);
        rowVector.setElementAt(aValue, col);
     }
}

Ok one part of my problem is solved. but now i need to change the color of the disabled checkbox to gray.
Is it possible to change the color?

NarendranathAuthor Commented:
If i tab out from an enabled cell to the disabled cell then the focus should not go that disabled cell, instead it has to go to the next enabled cell.
How i have to achieve this?
Please tell.

I can't post the rest of my answer.

Basically its the same code as above but with a TableCellRenderer to change the cell color depending on whether or not the cell is editable.

BTW, this is not a 10 point question.

You seem to have a lot of very low point questions at the moment.

I think that this ought to be 100 points minimum.
