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
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
