Printing Embedded JComponents

Hi everyone,

I have a JTextPane with an embedded JLabel and i am trying to print the contents of the JTextPane. When i print it an exception gets thrown saying that there is an error in the views.

This only happens if i have an embedded jcomponent in the jTextPane but other than that it prints fine with no problems. I thinking i have done something wrong with the views and have tried manipulating but nothing seems to work. I not really sure what i am doing wrong so i am listing a runnable example so you guys can run the program and see what i mean.

I am using the default styled document together with rtf editor kit and the content of the JTextPane is set to rtf.

It seems that i can print everthing else including embedded images and rtf text except an embedded jcomponent and maybe someone could have a look at my code and see what i am doing wrong and help me
print multi-page embedde jcomponents in the JTextPane

I hope someone can help me with this problem

Any help is greatly appreciated

Thank You

Yours Sincerely
