Do you mean you want the second text area to reflect at all times what's in the original text area? You can install a javax.swing.event.DocumentListener on the first text area's document to do that. Again, you just have to copy the text value of the first into the second as Michael Dunn showed before.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
