createTable creates a 2D java-based table that enables display, editing and sorting of 1D and 2D data using familiar look-and-feel. Columns can be resized and sorted; data can be selected, printed, copied, pasted etc., including to/from Excel; Rows can be added/deleted; Columns can have different alignments (right/center/left) and editors (checkbox/drop-down/...); Callback functions can be specified for multiple events (Data change, structure change, mouse click, ...) and multiple other aspects can be set programatically (see extensive help within the m file).
Works on Matlab 7.1 onward

Installation: unzip attached file; place the jar file in classpath.txt or use javaaddpath; then run the createTable m-function.

Syntax: [mtable, buttons] = createTable (pnContainer, headers, data, buttonsFlag, 'PropName',PropValue, ...)

See detailed help within the file (run: help createTable)
