be on their eind.

I'm sure that is true, but what does it have to do with this thread?

The capability that I am trying to get is this. I have two

I'm sure that is true, but what does it have to do with this thread?

On this thread, you have addressed two different people and asked about
their posts, Haircuts and John Matthews. From the context, I'm now guessing
the first one was due to not having a post of Haircuts left to reply to ?

Either way, it does seem to be on 'your' end (Google) - the posts are still
visible on my news server, and nothing about them seems special or unusual.

Liebe Gruesse,
Joerg

Looking at the attributions, which your posts preserved, you can see that
both questions were addressed to the same person.
the first one was due to not having a post of Haircuts left to reply to ?

It was due to every post of Haircuts' being marked "This message has been deleted."

Something to which John Matthews also alluded in response to your post.

Thank you. That is helpful to know.

Still, for even GG to report that the messages have been deleted, someone
took an affirmative action to delete them. So I took the reasonable action
of asking the poster what happened, under the hypothesis that they initiated
the deletion. The answer I got was tangential at best, and completely
devoid of useful content, so I repeated the question - to the same person.

So I ask Haircut this: Did you in some fashion "delete" your posts?

This appears to be useful, but I have a few improvements to ask about.

(1) The table automatically scrolls to one less than the number of
rows in the table. It does not scroll to the last row!

(2) When resizing the window, how do you get both tables to show more
rows. The tables show only about 25 rows and never the last row.

(3 When I, myself, do begin to add more code to this project where
should I be concerned about exceptions occurring. Will adding "try-
catch" pairs get me around all exceptions. What exceptions can I
ignore. When should I use a SwingWorker.

My example starts with 100 rows, numbered 0 .. 99; added rows are
numbered 42. I don't recall the numbering used in your examples.

Apropos to this, I would reiterate Lew's question about your now deleted
examples. As Joerg Meier helpfully observed, they can be retrieved from
one's NNTP server, but you might clarify your preference.

Without context, the short answers are these: don't swallow exceptions
and don't block the EDT.

I figure he just doesn't want to answer this question. He's ignored it at least thrice so far.

Thanks for your code

I think I can get the vertical scrolling to work by adding an extra row at the very top of the two tables. I'll then insert data into that empty row and create a new empty row each time after I add the data. So, the automaticvertical scrolling will never show the empty bottom row.

About only showing about 25 rows. I meant to say that the scrolling works. I do see all the rows created, but the project only shows 25 at a time. So,I see 0 through 25, then 1 through 26, then 2 through 27, ..., then n through n+25. So, I was wondering if it would be possible to be able to see more than 25 rows at a time apon a resize via a mouse drag.

Override getPreferredScrollableViewportSize(), a method in JTable's
implementation of Scrollable, to return the desired multiple of
getRowHeight().

John, currently the last row of your project tables is not immediately
scrolled into view. In other words, the project scrolls down to the
last minus one row and not the last row. It would be nice to see the
project scroll down to the last row in the two tables. I need that
immediacy.

Alternately, I could enable the scrollbar in the left table, but since
this scrollbar will never be used, it looks bad.

Thanks,

OK, I see what you mean. You can use the EventQueue to perform the
scroll _after_ the table has a chance to respond to the update.

final int last = modelA.getRowCount();
EventQueue.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
@Override
public void run() {
tableA.scrollRectToVisible(
tableA.getCellRect(last, last, true));
}
});
