Hello,
I have a table (colums and rows not fixed), but table's size is fixed. Now I want to have a scrollpane in both horizontal side and vertical size. I saw several examples which have a scrollpane just in vertical size.
For exp, my table have 20 colums, and 40 rows. Now, in viewport, we can see 10 colums and 20 rows, so I'd like to  use scrollpane to view all table.
Please help me as soon as possible
Thanks a lot
NN

If you just place your table in a JScrollPane you should have vertical as well as horizontal scrollbars

JScrollPane yourScrollPane = new JScrollPane();
yourScrollPane.setViewportView(yourTable);

whateverComponent.add( yourScrollPane );  // instead of yourTable

Not really needed.
The JScrollPane constructor without any paremeters creates a JScrollPane where both horizontal and vertical scrollbars appear when needed

Incorrect. Then you can

yourScrollPane.setHorizontalScrollBarPolicy(JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS);
yourScrollPane.setVerticalScrollBarPolicy(JScrollPane.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS);

( xxx_ALWAYS instead of xxx_AS_NEEDED)

Sorry, but this is what you said:

>>you can explicitly
>>JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED
>>JScrollPane.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED

(remark:  xxx_AS_NEEDED)

I think a correction was needed for the author of this question not to be mislead. (no offence meant)

The number of columns is irrelevant. The scrollbars will appear ***when needed***.
That means: as much columns as possible will be shown. The rest of the columns will be "reachable" by scrolling
