help with scrolling JTables

  Asked By: Jodon    Date: May 28    Category: Java    Views: 767

I have been creating several tables to
display the records of a database. My problem is how
to make the table scroll horizontally. When i create
the tables and run them, what happens is, the column
widths are so thin that you can't read the content.
Java tries to make them fit inside the tableP(panel).
I want them to be set to 100 pixels wide and the other
columns hidden from view unless i scroll horizontally.

here is a flowchart on how it is made:
table(an instance of JTable) is found inside
tableScroll. tableScroll is found inside tableP.
tableP is then found inside the JFrame.

1. table >
2. tableScroll (this is the JScrollPane used so the
column headers will show.) >
3. tableP>
4. JFrame

Please help. I've been stuck here for quite a few
days now.
