Hi
I have a doubt regarding JLabel,i want to show the text in 2 lines
using JLabel, that means multiline text.i have some web services methods
and if i call that methods that text will store in JLabel,if that methods
containing large text,i was storing only small amount of text and
remaining text could be not shown in single line,now i want to implement
in multiline text using lbl.setMaximumSize() method,but this is not
working.please provide me any solution regarding this issue.

Thank you in advance

You can try using html tags fot the text to be shown in JLabel. So that the <br> tag will help for next line.

And if the text is too long, try wrapping the JLabel in a JScrollPane.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
