My program use JTable to show information in form of table.

Is it possible to disable column swapping feature such that user can only resize the column size, but he/she cannot swapping the columns (eg. swapping column one to column four by drag-and-drop). How to achieve it ?

Thanks.........

For restricting column movement use
    table.getTableHeader().setReorderingAllowed(false);

For restricting column resizing use
    table.getTableHeader().setResizingAllowed(false);

For individual column resizing use
    table.getColumnModel().getColumn(index).setResizable(false/true);

    NOTE:This does not work (due to a feature) prior to the Java 2 Platform, Standard Editiion, version 1.3 (Kestrel).

JTableHeader.setReorderingAllowed(boolean reorderingAllowed)

          Sets whether the user can drag column headers to reorder columns.
