This is a long shot, but is it possible to call a Swing actionPerformed/actionListner from a HREF within a Swing app in the same way as say from a JButton?
I am using a StringBuffer to create a HTML label to display some text to my Swing app page, but I need links to another panel within this page.
So I was thinking (hoping) there might be some way to create a type funtion within the page.
Anyone have any ideas (presuming my explanation actually makes sense)
You can't, no. But you can add a MouseListener to the label, and respond to its mouseClicked event. That leaves you the problem of finding out where in the string you clicked, but maybe you can figure that out yourself.
Actually you can. Just add a muse listener to the JEditorPane/JTextPane. When it's clicked you can get position in the document using viewToModel() method passing the click point. Then get the HTMLDocument and call getCharacterElement() to get leaf Element. Then check the Element's attributes. If the attributes contain link attrs get do a desired action for the specific attrs.
That's source code snippet from HTMLEditorKit.
