Button text in JTable renderer not visible. Why?

I have a custom cell renderer set in JTable and it works but instead an "x" visible on buttons being table cells I see "..." (three dots). What did I miss ??

 * Listener reagujący na dodanie nowej wartości
private static class ButtonRenderer extends JButton implements
        TableCellRenderer {
     * Konstruktor
    public ButtonRenderer() {

     * @see TableCellRenderer#getTableCellRendererComponent(JTable, Object,
     *      boolean, boolean, int, int)
    public Component getTableCellRendererComponent(JTable table,
            Object value, boolean isSelected, boolean hasFocus, int row,
            int column) {
        return this;

Answer 1

The size of the button isn't large enough to contain the rendered "x" plus the padding around it.

A solution would be to enlarge the table cell or reduce the padding (always assuming that the button has the same size as the table cell).

Any time I create a custom header renderer for a JTable it ends up not looking correct with the nimbus look and feel. The default table headers have a silvery gradient, custom renderers do not look that way. In the past I just avoided creating custom header renderers. Is it possible to copy the default look onto my new custom renderer? Basically I want to add a checkbox and have the area around it look like a normal column...

Can somebody please explain how I would create row headers?

Right now its background is white, so it looks like regular data. I want it to appear gray (or non-opaque I guess??). Oh and it shou...

java - How should I buffer my data to the renderer?

Thank you for the help in advance! I am making a 2D game in Java with LWJGL, and I am separating the renderer and game logic into separate threads. To do so, I have to put the world data in the view into a buffer, which then gets passed to the renderer thread. The data is made up from the world, which is static and can be passed by reference, but the entities are too dynamic to do so. The maximum nu...
