Show Cell Content in Tool Tips

JTable cuts off any cell content that it cannot display, and by default automatically formats cell width to fit all cells on the screen. The best way to ensure that users will always be able to see entire cell content is to display the content in a tool-tip when user holds the mouse pointer over the cell a few moments. See Table Cell Tool Tip for an example, and Multi-line Cells for a few alternative approaches.
