few questions: 1. how do i select some text, provided i know the positions of start and end. i tried jtextpane.select(pos1,pos2); but it didnt mark the text, it only moved the caret to pos2. 2. how do i prevent a user from typing any text in the textpane? however i want him to be able to click on words in the textpane summarizing the above two questions: my requirement is to select/mark a word on which the user clicks. any inputs on this would be appreciated.

This sounds a like hyperlink effect? If so, I know JEditorPane is often used for this by adding a HyperlinkListener. Maybe you can implement that with JTextPane. I'm not sure. See if this helps. (Click on JEditorPane in the left frame.) JEditorPane Good Luck!
