    Default JTable Row Color

    Hi all,
    in order to set the background color to each row that has some value (1000 for example) in some colon, i made this DefaultTableCellRenderer :

    class RowColorRenderer implements TableCellRenderer {

    public static final DefaultTableCellRenderer MyDTCR = new DefaultTableCellRenderer();

    public Component getTableCellRendererComponent(JTable TheTable,Object TheValue,boolean isSelected,boolean hasFocus,int row,int column)
    { Component renderer = MyDTCR.getTableCellRendererComponent(TheTable, TheValue, isSelected, hasFocus, row, column);
    ((JLabel) renderer).setOpaque(true);
    Color foreground, background;
    if (isSelected) {
    foreground = Color.yellow;
    background = Color.green;
    else { if (TheTable.getValueAt(row,7).toString().equals("100 "))
    {foreground = Color.blue;
    background = Color.red;
    else {foreground = Color.white;
    background = Color.blue;

    return renderer;

    But, it does NOT work...
    Thanks to anyone tell me what is wrong in the code ....
