JRadioButtons in a JTable

Hi all,

I'm looking at this example on objects website:
http://www.objects.com.au:8088/objects/java/examples/swing/RadioButtonTableCell2.do

But it does not quite work. When you click on a radiobutton the first time, everything is deselected, and then on the second click it selects the JRadioButton. Can somebody please tell me how to sort this, since I'm just not seeing it.

Thanks in advance

those examples are getting so out of date
i've updated a few but that ones stiull in the works.

what you basically need to do is change the editor to the follwoing

  class RadioButtonEditor extends AbstractCellEditor implements TableCellEditor {
    RadioButtonPanel panel;

    public RadioButtonEditor(RadioButtonPanel panel) {
      this.panel = panel;
      ButtonGroup buttonGroup = new ButtonGroup();
      JRadioButton[] buttons  = panel.getButtons();
      for (int i=0; i<buttons.length; i++) {
        buttonGroup.add(buttons[i]);
      }                  
    }

    public Component getTableCellEditorComponent(JTable table, Object value,
                   boolean isSelected, int row, int column) {
      if (value instanceof Integer) {
        panel.setSelectedIndex(((Integer)value).intValue());
      }      
      return panel;
    }

    public Object getCellEditorValue() {
      return new Integer(panel.getSelectedIndex());
    }
  }

riaancornelius,
> the second

Ok I see what you mean. Try objects' suggestion, it should work.

Objects, your suggestion works within the current row, but as soon as the row loses focus, both my radiobuttons are selected. Is there maybe a problem in the renderer?

try adding the radio buttons to a button group in the panel ctor

lol, I just tried that. Yes, this sorts it:

class RadioButtonPanel extends JPanel {
    JRadioButton[] buttons;
   
    public RadioButtonPanel(String[] str) {
        setLayout(new BoxLayout(this, BoxLayout.X_AXIS));
        buttons = new JRadioButton[str.length];
        ButtonGroup buttonGroup = new ButtonGroup();
        for (int i=0; i<buttons.length; i++) {
            buttons[i] = new JRadioButton(str[i]);
            buttonGroup.add(buttons[i]);
            buttons[i].setFocusPainted(false);
            add(buttons[i]);
        }
    }
