JTable is a Java class that is part of the Swing library. Swing is a graphics library built into Java, allowing you to construct user interfaces that can display on any operating system that supports the Java Runtime Environment. You can create a date-picking element in your Swing application by creating a new date picker object with the range information in its constructor.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Open your Java source code document and navigate to the JTable object you have created inside of your Swing class.

  2. 2

    Create a new TableModel object that holds a DatePickerTable. You must create the DatePickerTable with a range of date values in MMDDYYYY format. The first value is the begin date and the last is the end date. In code, this looks like:

    TableModel date Picker = new DatePickerTable("01011999","12302000");

  3. 3

    Set the display interval in the date Picker object. By default each day is displayed, but you may set a regular interval. To set a 15-day interval between date options, use this code:

    datePicker.interval = 15;

  4. 4

    Attach your table model into your JTable:

    JTable newtable = new JTable (datePicker);

    Your Java application now has a drop-down date selection dialogue.
