I have a project .. it's a bout making a text editor
just like the Word
I'm making it with java , net Beans
but the headmaster wants me to use canvas ...
It means we are dealing with letters as images
I'm facing a trouble with dividing the canvas into rows & columns ... My headmaster had mention the gridlayout ... but I don't know how to deal with it & with the canvas
I'm not very familiar with java ... and the time is passing by ....
please,if any one can give me a hand ... I'll be so thankful ...
in the end we will have an editor which you can write on it ... draw shapes ... load images ... change type ,size, color of the font ... undo & redo your work
and check the spelling of the letters ... I think I have to use a dictionary in this work
and sure save your work in binary file because it'll be lists of images ....
please help me ....
