JTable: How do I make it scrollable?

Hi,

I've made a JTable (from the SimpleTableDemo at http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/uiswing/components/table.html#show)

Anyhow... I've populated it with a few hundred rows and cols.

But it writes most of them with '...'

How do I get to view the entire column heading (not '...') as well as all the data in the cells?

And how can I scroll over to the last column. There is no horizontal scroll bar.

Is this something to do with the ScrollPane?

   // Create a table with 10 rows and 5 columns
    JTable table = new JTable(10, 5);
   
    // Make the table vertically scrollable
    JScrollPane scrollPane = new JScrollPane(table);

By default, a table is created with auto resize enabled. This means that if the user changes the width of the table, the columns automatically expand or shrink so that all the columns are entirely visible. In this mode, there is no need for a horizontal scrollbar. In order to get horizontal scrolling, auto resize must be disabled.

    // Disable auto resizing to make the table horizontal scrollable
    table.setAutoResizeMode(JTable.AUTO_RESIZE_OFF);
