    Default Having trouble with 2d Array


    I would like to add column names and fields entered in text boxes to a JTable, but my code is not compiling. Also, is there a way to set a 2d array to an undetermined size? I'm not sure how many entries there will be. Here is my code:

    Java Code:
    public class CustomerDisplay
    	JFrame frame = new JFrame();
    	JPanel panel = new JPanel();
    	private String [] columnNames = null;
    	private String[][] rowData = null;
    	public CustomerDisplay(String rowData[][], String [] columnNames )
    		this.columnNames = columnNames;
    		this.rowData = rowData;
    		JTable table = new JTable(rowData, columnNames);
    		JScrollPane sp = new JScrollPane(table);
    Java Code:
    public class Customer extends JPanel
    	JPanel panel = new JPanel();
    	private String [] columnNames = {"First Name", "Last Name", "Customer Status", "Dependent Age", "Customer ID"};
    	private String [][] rowData = new String [10][10];
    	public Customer()
    		panel.setLayout(new BorderLayout());
    		panel.add(new Buttons(), BorderLayout.NORTH);
    		panel.add(new CustomerInformation(), BorderLayout.CENTER);
    		panel.add(new CustomerDisplay(rowData, columnNames), BorderLayout.SOUTH);

    If your code is not compiling, provide the error message(s) and line number(s) that the compiler gives you.

    As far as I know, there is no way to create an array of an undetermined size. However, an array can be resized using the Array.newInstance() method, then System.arraycopy().

    Post your complete error message here to see. I don't think that anyone wants to compile your code and fix errors for you.

    Just looking at your code I've seen that you haven't import any required packages in to the class file.
