I know for JTextArea i can give rows and columns but the JEditorPane, just is big enough initialluy to accomodate the displayed text and not more this is inconvenient when there is no text to begin with. how can i set a particular initial preferred size ? thanks
the layout manager sets the size of the components. if the JEditorPane is inside a JScrollPane, you can specify the preferred size of its viewport. for the frame that contains the scrollpane, you should call pack() (instead of setSize()). the layout manager will then take the preferred sizes of the components to lay them out. example: scrollPane.getViewport().setPreferredSize(new Dimension(300,300); regards
