Updating the ip helper tables
To customize initial column widths, you can invoke supplies getter and setter methods for the minimum, preferred, and maximum widths of a column, as well as a method for getting the current width.
For an example of setting cell widths based on an approximation of the space needed to draw the cells' contents, see the widths.
You can think of the renderer as a configurable ink stamp that the table uses to stamp appropriately formatted data onto each cell.
When the user starts to edit a cell's data, a to control the cell editing.
In the screenshot below, a user has run the program, clicked in the first row, then control-clicked in the third row.
Notice the outline around the last cell clicked; this is how the Metal look and feel highlights the lead selection. If you click on the "Single Interval Selection" radio button, you can select a set of rows that must be contiguous.
This list is initialized by the table, but you can add to it or change it.
When the user resizes a column by dragging its right border, then either other columns must change size, or the table's size must change.
By default, the table's size remains the same, and all columns to the right of the drag point resize to accommodate space added to or removed from the column to the left of the drag point.
To choose the renderer that displays the cells in a column, a table first determines whether you specified a renderer for that particular column.
If you did not, then the table invokes the table model's method, which gets the data type of the column's cells.
