Working for a long time in windows platform.I am new in working in Java in Unix world.
Problem: JTextPane [javax.swing.text.JTextPane]
Even when the JTextPane is set to Editable false the paste operation is working. I worked the same example in windows,it does not allow to type or paste anything.
But in unix,solaris/Linux redhat: it does not allow me to type ,but when i use the middle button in solaris content in clipboard is getting paste inthe JTextPane.
i tried to override the paste method [in JTextcomponent class] to do nothing. even then its pastes.
What is the method that invokes when middle button is clicked in solaris or two buttons clicked at same time in linux.?
I am thinking Ctrl+V in windows is equavalent to middle button click in solaris.
bottom line.I don't want the JTextPane to take any paste operations.
here is what i did:
class JtPane extends JTextPane
public JtPane()
/*overide paste method of JTextComponent*/
public void paste()
{System.out.println("Paste Disabled");}
/*works in windows but not in solaris??*/

That function is being done automatically by your window manager without consulting the application.
It's simulating someone typing, not a true "paste". The only way I know to turn it off is to actually meddle with each user's desktop global parameters, and I doubt they'd like that.
I know I wouldn't. I use the middle button a LOT.
