At the moment it is only possible to use "TableModel" as generic parameter in
"setFilter(RowFilter<? super TableModel, ? super Integer> filter)".


DefaultTableModel model = new DefaultTableModel(rowData, columnNames);
JXTable table = new JXTable(model);
RowFilter<DefaultTableModel, Integer> filter = RowFilter.regexFilter("240", 1);
table.setRowFilter(filter); // error

wont work, because of this error:
The method setRowFilter(RowFilter<? super TableModel,? super Integer>) in the
type JXTable is not applicable for the arguments

In JTable to set a RowFilter, you use an instance of TableRowSorter<M extends
TableModel> where "setRowFilter(RowFilter<? super M, I super Integer> filter)"
is given. That means the first generic parameter has to be a "? super M extends
TableModel" type. To do this directly in JXTable, you can use this way:

public <R extends TableModel> void setFilter(RowFilter<? super R, ? super
Integer> filter) {
if (hasSortController())

{ // all fine, because R is a TableModel (R extends TableModel) SortController<R> sorter = (SortController<R>) getSortController(); sorter.setRowFilter(filter); }

else {
// no sort controller
if (getRowSorter() instanceof DefaultRowSorter<?, ?>)

{ // all fine, because R is a TableModel (R extends TableModel) DefaultRowSorter<R, Integer> sorter = (DefaultRowSorter<R, Integer>) getRowSorter(); sorter.setRowFilter(filter); }

That issue may address all other swingx components with "setRowFilter()" as well.

applied the patch (slightly changed) to JXTable/JXList

the slight change is to do nothing if the hasSortController is false: JXTable guarantees
to not touch the RowSorter if it can't do it completely
