Hi,
I'm using a tree in my swing application. The tree model is changing all the time.
When I reload the tree model, the tree collapses and show it first hierarchy.
How can I set the tree to keep it collapses/expansion status after model reload?
Thanks.

hmm.

i would try adding a TreeModelListener to the TreeModel...

TreeModel model = new YourModel();
JTree tree = new JTree(model);

model.addTreeModelListener(
new TreeModelListener() {
public void treeStructureChanged(TreeModelEvent e) {
// and here, try make some record of the current expansion state
// and then recreate it... errr.... somehow.  sorry, im not sure
}

});

you can't, as its displaying different data.
you'll need to save whats collapsed and whats not and expand the tree yourself as required.

don't reload your model :)
if the data is changing so much that u need to reload the model how can you retain the previously expaned nodes anyway (as they may no longer be there)
