Hello Experts,

why do I get two values when selecting a row?
I get the following:
value selected: value 0
value selected: value 0
value selected: value 1
value selected: value 1
value selected: value 2
value selected: value 2
value selected: value 3
value selected: value 3

I want the return to be only one...

code below:
public class SplitPaneExample extends JFrame implements ActionListener {
	
	private static final long serialVersionUID = 1L;
	JMenu menu;
	JMenuItem menuOpen, menuSave, menuQuit;
	JMenuBar menuBar;
	
	JFileChooser fileChoose;
	File file;
	FileReader fileReader;
	BufferedReader bufferReader;
	StringBuffer stringBuffer;
	
	JTextArea bottomArea, topLeft, topRight;
	JScrollPane scrollPane;
	
	JSplitPane hSplit, vSplit;
	JPanel mainPanel, leftPanel, rightPanel;
	
	JTable myLeftTable;
	JScrollPane myLeftTableScrollPane;
	@SuppressWarnings("rawtypes")
	Vector<Vector> leftTableContainer, rightTableContainer, bottomTableContainer;
	Vector<String> leftTableValues, rightTableValues, leftTableColumnName;

	
	public SplitPaneExample(){
		createUserInterface();
	}

	private void createUserInterface() {		
		setFrame();
		setPanels();		
	}
	
	public void setFrame(){
		//set frame/window title, background color, dimensions...
		setTitle("test - top left and table listeners...");
		setBackground(Color.white);
		setPreferredSize(new Dimension(600, 500));
		setVisible(true);
	}
	
	public void setPanels(){
		//set text areas
		topLeft = new JTextArea();
		topLeft.setText("topLeft...");
		topLeft.setAlignmentX(CENTER_ALIGNMENT);
		
		topRight = new JTextArea();
		topRight.setText("topRight...");
		topRight.setAlignmentX(CENTER_ALIGNMENT);
		
		bottomArea = new JTextArea();
		bottomArea.setText("bottomArea...");
		bottomArea.setAlignmentX(CENTER_ALIGNMENT);
		
		//split panes		
		vSplit = new JSplitPane();
		vSplit.setOrientation(JSplitPane.VERTICAL_SPLIT);
		vSplit.setDividerSize(3);
		vSplit.setDividerLocation(200);
		
		hSplit = new JSplitPane();
		hSplit.setOrientation(JSplitPane.HORIZONTAL_SPLIT);
		hSplit.setDividerSize(3);	
		hSplit.setDividerLocation(130);
		
		// add table to left component
		leftTableValues = new Vector<String>();
		leftTableValues.add("value 0");
		leftTableValues.add("value 1");
		leftTableValues.add("value 2");
		leftTableValues.add("value 3");
		
		hSplit.setLeftComponent(getLeftTable());
		hSplit.setRightComponent(topRight);
		
		vSplit.setLeftComponent(hSplit);
		vSplit.setRightComponent(bottomArea);
		
		//add vertical split: vSplit to content_pane
		Container content_pane = getContentPane();
		content_pane.add(vSplit, BorderLayout.CENTER);
	}
	
	public JScrollPane getLeftTable(){
		myLeftTable = new JTable(getLeftTableValues(), getColumnName());
		myLeftTable.setCellSelectionEnabled(true);
		
		ListSelectionModel cellSelectionModel = myLeftTable.getSelectionModel();
	    cellSelectionModel.setSelectionMode(ListSelectionModel.SINGLE_SELECTION);
		cellSelectionModel
				.addListSelectionListener(new ListSelectionListener() {
					public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) {

						String valueSelected = null;
						int selectedRow = myLeftTable.getSelectedRow();
						valueSelected = leftTableValues.get(selectedRow);

						System.out.println("value selected: " + valueSelected);
					}
				});
	    
		myLeftTableScrollPane = new JScrollPane(myLeftTable);
		return myLeftTableScrollPane;
	}
	
	@SuppressWarnings({ "rawtypes", "unchecked" })
	public Vector<Vector> getLeftTableValues(){		
		if(leftTableContainer == null){
			
			leftTableContainer = new Vector<Vector>();
			
			//left table values
			Vector[] v = new Vector[leftTableValues.size()];
			for(int x=0; x < leftTableValues.size(); x++){				
				v[x] = new Vector<String>();
				v[x].add(leftTableValues.get(x));
				leftTableContainer.add(v[x]);
			}	
			
			return leftTableContainer;
			
		} else {
			return leftTableContainer;
		}
	}
	
	public Vector<String> getColumnName(){
		if(leftTableColumnName == null){			
			leftTableColumnName = new Vector<String>();
			leftTableColumnName.add("values:");			
			return leftTableColumnName;			
		} else {
			return leftTableColumnName;
		}
	}
	
	@Override
	public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent e) {
		// TODO Auto-generated method stub
		
	}
	
	public static void main(String args[]) {
		// Create an instance of the test application
		SplitPaneExample frame = new SplitPaneExample();
		frame.pack();
		frame.setVisible(true);
	}

check this answer:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5865343/why-does-jtable-always-trigger-listselectionlistener-twice

Look at the event that is passed to your listener, specifically

ListSelectionEvent.getValueIsAdjusting()

perform whatever ops you want to do when this returns false.

check this:

http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/javax/swing/event/ListSelectionEvent.html#getValueIsAdjusting%28%29

getValueIsAdjusting

public boolean getValueIsAdjusting()

    Returns whether or not this is one in a series of multiple events, where changes are still being made. See the documentation for ListSelectionModel.setValueIsAdjusting(boolean) for more details on how this is used.

    Returns:
        true if this is one in a series of multiple events, where changes are still being made


----------------------

then go to your original code - then click on the upper row and drag the mouse down to the bottom
You'll see each time you cross the row - it prints the event

now go to the code with modification I posted above
do the same thing - you'll see only when you reach the last row it will printout the
value selected event.

So this getValueIsAdjusting()  is a pretty useful method
