Hi,
I'm writing a Chat Application and I want to add Emoticon, I did so by adding buttons but I don't know how to send the gif to my JTextField and to my JTextArea.
Here is part of my code can someone can help me PLEASE!!!
JPanel chatPane = new JPanel(new BorderLayout());
JPanel emoticon = new JPanel(new GridLayout(2, 5));
b1 = new JButton (sourrire);
b1.setToolTipText("Un Sourire");
// b1.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b1);
b2 = new JButton (gsourrire);
b2.setToolTipText("Un Grand Sourire");
// b2.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b2);
b3 = new JButton (triste);
b3.setToolTipText("Triste");
// b3.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b3);
b4 = new JButton (grimace);
b4.setToolTipText("Grimace");
// b4.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b4);
b5 = new JButton (pleure);
b5.setToolTipText("Pleure");
// b5.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b5);
b6 = new JButton (bec);
b6.setToolTipText("Un bec");
// b6.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b6);
b7 = new JButton (coeur);
b7.setToolTipText("Un coeur pour toi");
// b7.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b7);
b8 = new JButton (fache);
b8.setToolTipText("Fache");
// b8.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b8);
b9 = new JButton (lunettes);
b9.setToolTipText("Je suis Cool");
// b9.addActionListener();
emoticon.add(b9);
b10 = new JButton (clinoeil);
b10.setToolTipText("Clin d'Oeil");
//b10.addActionListener(new ActionAdapter2());
emoticon.add(b10);
Thanks a lot!

Bonjour, and welcome to JavaRanch Isabelle !
Your display name doesn't quite fit the famous JavaRanch naming policy. Could you please take a minute to change your display name to show 2 names, preferably your real name. (It's all about maintaining our professional image - don't let the one-eyed moose fool you!).
Hope you'll be visiting the ranch often!
Thanks,
Pauline

JTextField amd JTextArea only support simple text, not images... instead of JTextField and JTextArea, you'll need to use JEditorPane. JEditorPane supports HTML, so you could use <image> tags to display your images.
