Is it possible to setWeights to define the relative sizes of colums in a
table? Also when I have added colums, there is a space to right hand side
that is undefined, how do I get the colums to absorb this space?

given your Table object is called table:
table.getSize().x gives you the width your columns can use.
Hope that helped,

my antecessor already proposed some good advice on this topic. I just wanted to add another option to address this problem. I always handle it this way:
1) Define a default width for all table columns
2) Add the user option to resize all colums that way that they adopt the width of the widest cell by using <i>TableColumn.pack()</i>. Add an accelerator for this as done in windows explorer (ctrl + plus) for example.
I switched to this solution since it doesn't restrict the user so much. Experience taught me that many users do not want a table to auto resize as the enclosing component, e.g. the window is resized.
