HI,

Is there a way to invoke internet explorer from a Swing screen?
for e.g. can we show a url on a swing screen and when the user clicks on that the url it is opened in IE

Any help would be appretiated

Thanks in advance

Welcome to JavaRanch.

You could display the URL as the text on a JLabel, and then handle clicks on that label. Opening an URL in a browser can be accomplished with the help of the Bare Bones Browser Launcher class.
