I have a splitpane. On the left side of the splitpane I have a panel
which has a textarea. On the right side of the splitpane I have another
panel with a JEditorpane. The contents of the JEditor pane is an
html file that has hyperlinks. The hyperlinks are links to some files.
When I click on the hyperlink, I want the particular file to be
displayed in the textarea. At present when I click on the hyperlink,
the file contents are loaded in the JEditorPane. But, I want the
contents to be loaded in the textarea. How do I achieve this?
Please, can anyone give me some inputs how I implement the hypertextListener
