ScrollBar Problem

hi ...
i have a form that has a table...
i wanted to add scroll bars to that table but i don't really know how to do it.
can someone help me please??

this is my code for creating the table :
final String[] colName = { "CPR", "Name", "Address", "Phone", "Sex", "Date OF Birth" };

TableModel pageModel = new AbstractTableModel()
{
public int getColumnCount()
{
return tableData[0].length;
} //getColumnCount

public int getRowCount()
{
return tableData.length;
} //getRowCount

public Object getValueAt(int row, int col)
{
return tableData[row][col];
} //getValueAt

public String getColumnName(int column)
{
return colName[column];
} //getcolName

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

public boolean isCellEditable(int row, int col)
{
return false;
} //isCellEditable

public void setValueAt(String aValue, int row, int column)
{
tableData[row][column] = aValue;
} //setValueAt
}; //pageModel

//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
//Create the JTable from the table model:

dataTable = new JTable(pageModel);

//-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

if (scrollpane != null)
{
scrollpane.setVisible(false);
scrollpane = null;
} //if

scrollpane = new JScrollPane(dataTable);
scrollpane.setVisible(true);

if (inputPanel == null)
makeGUI();
customerPanel.add(scrollpane, BorderLayout.SOUTH);

c.add(tabs);
id.grabFocus();
pack();
repaint();
adupdateTable();
} //try
catch (Exception e)
{
System.out.println("Caught updateTable exception: " + e);
} //catch
} //updatetable

thankxx

scrollpane = new JScrollPane(dataTable);

is quite right. The scrollbars will only appear if they need to unless you set them to always appear.

scrollpane = new JScrollPane(dataTable, JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS, JScrollPane.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS);

I would use subclass of DefaultTableModel rather than AbstractTableModel as the latter contains a few gotchas.

Oops - the constants should be the other way around!

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

CEHJ is correct, in that your code would work.  However, I've had problems in the past where the horizontal scroll bar doesn't always appear when you would expect it to (with the table).  Instead of allowing you to scroll using a scroll bar (this is true even if you set it to always show), it will resize all of the columns to fit into the space available (the vertical scroll bar is fine though).

To get around it you can indicate that you do not want your table to resize inside the scroll pane, by using:
        dataTable.setAutoResizeMode(JTable.AUTO_RESIZE_OFF);
