Adding a JProgressBar inside a JTable cell

A JTable registers default renderers for a Number, Date, ImageIcon, Boolean and Object. If you want to render another component, you have to create a custom class that implements TableCellRenderer and register it with the method setDefaultRenderer on the JTable object.

The following example creates a JTable where every row displays data from a Download object. A download object is a thread that mimics the behavior of downloading a file by increasing the number of downloaded bytes (progress) with a random value. Using the Observable-Observer pattern, the download object notifies the table model whenever the progress of downloading has changed.

Main.java:

import javax.swing.table.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.util.*;
import java.awt.*;
 
public class Main extends JFrame {
   public Main() {
      super("TableModel JProgressBar Demonstration");
 
      // create our own custom TableModel
      DownloadTableModel downloadModel = new DownloadTableModel();
      JTable table = new JTable(downloadModel);
 
      // add rows to our TableModel, each row is represented as a Download object
      downloadModel.addDownload(new Download("linuxmandrake.zip", 1234567));
      downloadModel.addDownload(new Download("flash5.exe", 56450000));
      downloadModel.addDownload(new Download("jdk1.2.2-007.zip", 20000000));
 
      // render the columns with class JProgressBar as such
      ProgressBarRenderer pbr = new ProgressBarRenderer(0, 100);
      pbr.setStringPainted(true);
      table.setDefaultRenderer(JProgressBar.class, pbr);
   
      // increase the height of the rows a bit
      table.setRowHeight((int) pbr.getPreferredSize().getHeight());
 
      // create the scroll pane and add the table to it. 
      JScrollPane scrollPane = new JScrollPane(table);
 
      // add the scroll pane to this window.
      getContentPane().add(scrollPane, BorderLayout.CENTER);

Get started with a simple JTable

Using a simple Swing table in your GUI apps doesn’t require a lot of code. Create a one-dimensional containing the table headers and a two-dimensional array that represents the contents. Create a JTable with those two arrays and add it to the container. This is the simpliest example. All cells are editable and column widths can be adjusted.
If you want to have more control over your JTables, you can create your own TableModel, CellRenderer and CellEditor.

import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import java.awt.*;
 
public class Main extends JFrame 
{
   public Main() {
      super("Table example, Wines from Bordeaux");
 
      Object[][] tabledata = {
            { "Chateau Meyney, St. Estephe", 	   new Integer(1994), "$18.75"},
            { "Chateau Montrose, St. Estephe", 	   new Integer(1975), "$54.25" },
            { "Chateau Gloria, St. Julien", 	   new Integer(1993), "$22.99" },
            { "Chateau Beychevelle, St. Julien",   new Integer(1970), "$61.63" },
            { "Chateau La Tour de Mons, Margeaux", new Integer(1975), "$57.03" },
            { "Chateau Brane-Cantenac, Margeaux",  new Integer(1978), "$49.92" },
      };
 
      String columnheaders[] = { "Wine", "Vintage", "Price" };
 
      JTable table = new JTable(tabledata, columnheaders);
      table.setPreferredScrollableViewportSize(new Dimension(500, 70));
      JScrollPane scrollPane = new JScrollPane(table);
