I have created a JTable that allows a user to edit a row inside of it. I set it up so that it will display comboboxes/etc... inside of it and that all works fine. Now here is the part that is tricking me up. When the user finished editing a row I want a button on the form to become enabled so that the user can click that button to update changes on the table permanently. I can't see how to know when the table is edited to make that button enabled. any ideas? thanks

Add a TableModelListener to your table's model that enables your form whenever a cell is changed.

public void tableChanged(TableModelEvent e)
{
   if (e.getType()==TableModelEvent.UPDATE)
   {
      // enable button if appropriate
   }
}

hi objects,

I added the code and placed my code to make the button enabled however nothing happens. It appears the event is not getting fired. Does this event need to be subclassed or something?

The model should be firing that event.
Did you add the listener to you model? model.addTableModelListener(mylistener);

Even if you don't use a model specifically just grab your model with

TableModel myModel = myTable.getDefaultTableModel()

and add your listener with

myModel.addTableModelListener(new MyTableListener());  // like objects said

with MyTableListener being something like:

public class MyTableListener extends DefaultTableListener
{
  // Same code as objects
  public void tableChanged(TableModelEvent e)
  {
     if (e.getType()==TableModelEvent.UPDATE)
     {
        // enable button if everything in table is updated to your satisfaction
     }
  }
}
