i have a swing application with timer and a jtextarea and a few buttons and fields built in. The jtextarea acts as a console and i will be printing everything out in there.
i realised that when the timer is running and executing instruction, my applciation will freeze and button cannot be press. what is frustrating is that the jtextarea is not updated and only do so after the timer stop.
I thought that timer is running on another thread?
any advise on this ?
