Hi all I don't know whether anyone can help me with this but I have a simple help facility in my application that reads an html file into a JEditorPane which is added to a JScrollPane and then the scroll pane is displyed on the screen in a JFrame. So far so good - the html file is read in and all appears on the screen excatly as I want it to be. The problem is that the file contains several hyperlinks that should allow the user to jump around in the file without having to scroll up and down but I can't work out how to select the hyperlinks in the first place. The api documents the key presses to use but I think I am right in thinking that the JEditorPane needs to have focus for these to work. I added a DefaultFocusTraversalPolicy to the editor pane but this had no effect, the screen is still unresponsive.
If anyone has any ideas on this I'd be very grateful. Thanks Sam
I may not be answering the question that you are actually asking, but here goes: Are you implementing the hyperLinkUpdate method? If not, let your JFrame implement HyperLinkListener and then supply the implementation of hyperLinkUpdate. (Or something like that). It will respond to hyperlink events, and you specify what page to display in the method.
You can define links in your html pages and then you can jump to these links. In HTML you can use NAME tag to create the link and then set HREF to the link.

Thanks BJ and Samual, it was the indeed that hyperlinkUpdate() needed to be implemented. The official API is not very clear on this so if anyone else is a bit unseure how to get it working there is a good exmaple in the book 'Professional Java Programming! by Wrox on 170. Thanks again Sam
