Alarm Status Table Column Manipulation

I recently ran across this forum post discussing changing the column size dynamically for a power table. I can get the code to work on a power table, but I’d like to do the same thing for an Alarm Status Table.

This may be entirely due to my lack of familiarity with Java and Swing, but I can’t find a way to access the table used to display the alarm status information. From thejava docs I see that the AbstractAlarmTable has a getSortable() method, but that is protected and inaccessible.

Has anyone done something similar with the Alarm Status Table? Any tips on what I’m missing?
