    Default because of the background I cannot Highlight a specific Row

    Java Code:

            inventoryTable = new JTable(data, columnNames) {
                public Component prepareRenderer(TableCellRenderer renderer, int row, int column) {
                    Component c = super.prepareRenderer(renderer, row, column);
                    // We want renderer component to be
                    // transparent so background image is visible
                    if(c instanceof JComponent) {
                    return c;
                public void paint( Graphics g ) {
                    // tile the background image
                    Dimension d = getSize();
                    for( int x = 0; x < d.width; x += tableBackground.getIconWidth()) {
                        for( int y = 0; y < d.height; y += tableBackground.getIconHeight()) {
                            g.drawImage( tableBackground.getImage(), x, y, null, null );
                        // Now let the paint do its usual work
            inventoryTable.getColumnModel().getColumn(0).setCellEditor(new MyTableCellEditor());
            inventoryTable.getColumnModel().getSelectionModel().addListSelectionListener(new ListSelectionListener() {
                public void valueChanged(ListSelectionEvent e) {
                    int rowIndex = inventoryTable.getSelectedRow();
                    System.out.println("row index: " + rowIndex);
            scroll = new JScrollPane(inventoryTable);
            scroll.setBounds(0, 300, 1395, 444);
            setTitle("Inventory Window");
            setSize(1400, 500);
      public static void main(String[] args) {
        SwingUtilities.invokeLater(new Runnable() {
          public void run() {
            new Inventory();
    I need to maintain this background of my JTable but when I click one of the row I cant see the background highlight maybe because of the TableRenderer,
    well I can see the foreground highlight but how can I resolve this problem without disregarding the background image.

    what I want is, when i click a specific row, that row's "OPACITY" or "RENDER" will be disregarded and the background highlight will be visible and when I deselected it the background will come back... Is this possible?

    and on more thing, I can only see the foreground highlight when i click the mouse once I mean when the mouse click is not released, but when i release the mouse the foreground highlight disappears.
