JAVA: Changing font style/color within a javax.swing.JTextArea
Posted by AnyoneEB [send private reply] at May 16, 2002, 06:47:25 PM As the topic said: I would like to know how to change the font style/color within a javax.swing.JTextArea.

Posted by AnyoneEB [send private reply] at May 16, 2002, 09:07:31 PM getFont and setFont affect the whole JTextArea, I need to change the font either by line or by word/character. If it's not possible with a JTextArea, another swing text component wouldn't cahnge my program that much, it just has to have multi=line support.
Posted by taubz [send private reply] at May 17, 2002, 03:44:50 PM If you've read the SDK page and you don't see a function that does it, then (obviously) what you are trying to do cannot be done.
I'm not familiar with Swing components, so I can't help you find another one.

Posted by AnyoneEB [send private reply] at May 17, 2002, 04:57:54 PM I know there's a way to do it, but reading the API I couldn't figure it out.
I think I saw something about displaying HTML, but it really wasn't clear how to use it.
