I am using a Jtable, some of the columns are tick boxes.

How can I detetect that a value in any cell has changed? If the value of a cell is changed I want some code to be exectuted.

How do I add the needed listner? How can I tell which cell has been changed?

Thanks

>> How can I tell which cell has been changed?

About TableModelEvent:

 int getColumn() : Returns the column for the event.
 int getFirstRow() : Returns the first row that changed.
 int getLastRow() : Returns the last row that changed.
 int getType() : Returns the type of event - one of: INSERT, UPDATE and DELETE.

>> How do I add the needed listner?

MyTable.getModel().addTableModelListener( new MyTableModelListener() );

with

class MyTableModelListener implements TableModelListener {

    void tableChanged(TableModelEvent e) {
         int columnChanged = e.getColumn();
         // whatever you want to do
    }
}

>>  class MyTableModelListener implements TableModelListener {

import javax.swing.event.*;        // <<<<<<<<<< The interface TableModelListener is defined in this package

class MyTableModelListener implements TableModelListener {
}


>> MyTable.getModel().addTableModelListener( new MyTableModelListener() );

1) replace "MyTable" by the name of your JTable variable
2) if you use your class MyTableModelListener you have to be sure it is "known"

     + Create a new directory "myapp"  (New > folder )
     + create your MyTableModelListener class in that folder

MyTableModelListener.java:

package myapp;               // <<<<<<<<<<<<<

import javax.swing.event.*;

class MyTableModelListener implements TableModelListener {
    ...
}

     + make sure the file where you use MyTableModelListener is also in that folder

YourWhateverClass.java:

package myapp;  // <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

import ...


By making both class files a member of the same package (myapp) you are assured that they will "know" each other.
