You're using JTable I assume?

See "setting and changing column widths" here
In particular, you might be interested in the section of text where it says, "For an example of setting cell widths based on an approximation of the space needed to draw the cells' contents, see the initColumnSizes method" (and then they give a link)


thanx for replay me.
But i don't want to set the column width of the table i want to show the cell value in joptionpane when i click on that cell or when i put mouse pointer on it.
for e.g suppose i click on the cell which showing the content 'Hello Fr' then the whole content of the cell is shown in joptionpane like 'Hello Friend' for more clearance if you are using mozila then put your mouse pointer on any open tab then you see the yellow box is appears showing the information of the tab. i want this kind of thing.
thanx you again and Have a good day!
