In a JTable when the user enters data in a cell & leaves the cell (by pressing tab or something), the tableChanged event gets fired (if I have a TableModelListener added to the JTable), what if the user didn't leave the cell and pressed another button directly (for example a save button), then the data will not be saved in the JTable (and thus will not be retrieved in its getValueAt() function), so what can I do?
I was thinking of programmatically processing the TAB key by the following piece of code:
DefaultFocusManager fm = new DefaultFocusManager();
fm.processKeyEvent(jtablex,KeyEvent.VK_TAB); //where jtablex is an object of class JTable
The problem with this code is that KeyEvent.VK_TAB is an integer not a KeyEvent object (and there is no overloaded function to take a component and a KeyEvent object)
