    refreshing within an applet

    Hi,

    Right now, I have my applet container set up using a GridLayout(2,1), where
    i've 'added' two JScrollPanes (one of a JTable, and the other of a JTextArea). The JTable is displaying the results of a query, and I was wondering if there were a way to refresh the JTable without having to refresh the text area. I'm going to eventually have the text area (and buttons) interact with that table, so anything I change must still allow me to do that eventually.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Vinh

    If you are using a table model, you need to 'fire' the changes to the model and the table will update automatically

    Kind regards,

    I'm assuming the JTable constructor (where I pass it a dataSet[][] and a columnSet[]) has a default table model of some kind... so would this be able to use those 'fire' methods?

    I thought the various 'fire' methods just acknowledged that a value in the table has been changed... by highlighting or something. But what if I added a new row? I'd imagine that unless it polls the sql query over and over, it doesn't really refresh the table...

    ... am i way off base here?
