I want to loop through the rows of a JTable and select one or more of the rows based on a unique value (ID) for the row.  Also I would like to hide the ID column in the row of the JTable so that it is not displayed in the rows of the JTable.  How do I accomplish this?

Thank You,
Dave

Use table.changeSelection(row, col, false, false) for each cell you want to be selected

int yourIDColumnIndex = 0; // I assume that your ID column is the first in the table
int theIDYouWantToSelect = 15; // Assume you want to select the rows with ID=15
int totalRows = theTable.getRowCount();
theTable.clearSelection();
for (int row=0; row < totalRows; row++) {
   Integer id = (Integer)theTable.getValueAt(row, yourIDColumnIndex);
   if (id.intValue() == theIDYouWantToSelect)
      theTable.addRowSelectionInterval(row, row);
}
