Hi,
i have a project am currently working on and i have a code such as this:
JTextArea a = new JTextArea();
. . .
. . .
. . .
a.getText();
a.setText(null); // to reset the JTextArea

at the output, i realised the Caret is not set, i have to click the JTextArea b4 it is set.
please what should i do?

I don't knwo whether this will sort out your problem, but try resetting your text to empty string rather than null. See whether that makes any difference.

. . . and are there any methods in JTextArea or its superclasses like requestFocus() ? That might help, too. Have a look in the API, see what it says.
