what are the different ways of displaying colored text and small images using swing just like in a chat window.Also is it possible only with JEditorPane or a JTextArea can do the trick.
If only i want to set colored text then what is the solution.
give me some idea guys.

Hi,
U can't have different colors for different text in JTextArea. U can use JTextPane instead. In JTextPane u can have multicolor and images too. But as per my experience with JTextPane, u can insert images into it, but retriveing them is difficult. If u need the code for multi color in JTextPane, then mail me at josephsk@slk-soft.com
