How to get the char index under the mouse cursor in a JTextComponent?

Hi! I created an editor where the user is able to put some properties in the text.
Some portions of text have some properties, some don't. I wish to display the available text properties when the mouse cursor hovers over the text. To to that, I need to know what is the char index under the mouse cursor.
How can I do that?

The (superclass) JTextComponent has two handy methods: viewToModel and modelToView.
