TableView: adjust number of visible rows


Question

I'm using this table to display data in Table View:

            num.set(id);
        }
    }
}

When I change the number of rows using Combo box only data in table rows is changed. Table height is not changed.

enter image description here

Is there a way to remove empty rows?

Changing tableview's height and removing "empty" rows are two different things. Be specific.

For removing rows see this tutorial.

For changing height, first set the fixedCellSizeProperty of the table view then use it in binding:

table.setFixedCellSize(25);
table.prefHeightProperty().bind(Bindings.size(table.getItems()).multiply(table.getFixedCellSize()).add(30));

Adding 30px is for tableview's header.
