I have a JTextArea that displays textual results sometimes i want to display an image (jpg etc) in that place. Can i attach the image to the JTextArea or do i need to get rid of it first and just attach it to the JPanel ? thanks

I don't think you can display an image inside a text area. either you use jtextpane, or jeditorpane, or you do as you suggested: get rid of the text area and use - not a jpanel, but a jlabel (and set the image as its (Image)Icon). if the jpgs are of limited number you could use a card layout. it is fast and you won't have to bother with any repainting logic which sometimes can be quite annoying. cheers
