This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Does anybody know any solution that allows the user to format the text he enters into a text area (font size, color, type etc.). Important is that the user can use different font styles within the same text area.
Do you want the text to be automatically displayed with the font, color, etc. in the text area or are you talking about providing options to let a person change font, etc. after the text has been typed in? If you want it automatically you may need to create your own listener, document, or document filter. I'd suggest going through the Text Component Features part of the Java Tutorial.
The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.
