    Default DefaultCellEditor does not support empty cells

    I have a table (MyTable) with a tablemodel and a DefaultCellEditor (see below code at the bottom). I do not want any cells in my table to be negative but empty cells are acceptable. When a user deletes the content of a cell, an error is triggered here:

    if(txtfld.getText().isEmpty()==true)
    return super.stopCellEditing(); //this triggers an error

    What do I need to change in the code to be able to have nulls in the table?

    Thanks in advance

    That is for you to decide.
    Figure out when the null value will be introduced, how to handle it, what to display in it's place on the table as a marker. (empty space is something to show)

    Sometimes in systems with all positive numbers, negative values are used to represent "null" or "invalid" type values. Not that this fits into all designs, but something to consider.
