Hello,

I would like to develop an XML editor, does someone knows where I can find some sample code or tutorial to help me ?
I would like to code something clean and therefore I'm sure there are some patterns to follow.

Thanks a lot.

Hi Christophe,
Welcome to the Ranch.

Swing has a built in component called JEditorPane which handles markups. Check out the source code to get an idea.
Also check out the JTextPane.

My idea is to have an editor where I can use drap and drop of "component".

1. I drag and drop a component from the left bar to the main window
2. Automatically a window opens and asks me to specifies information related to the component
3. The generated code is written in the main window at the point defined by the drag and drop

Do you think I can do that with jeditorpane ?

Probably best discussed on the Swing forum. Moving.

I don't see why not.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
