I have a String which contains multiple lines ("\n") and I want to add it to a JDialog window. The thing is, the JDialog isn't wrapping around the text so some longer lines in the String will just run off the edge.
I there any way I can get the JDialog to resize itself so it fits the whole String into it?
I actually had a look into JLabels because of they wrap but I couldn't get them to show on top of each other, they just went side by side. Do you know which layout I should use? I tried a couple I found online but none did it.
Randall: I thought so too but no, they just run off. Also it's not THAT urgent.
labels support html, just change \n's to br's (wrapped in tags)

I saw this too and tried it out. The problem with it is that the second line will align to the first line and won't be centered if it's a different length.
Also it trims the string so I can't put in spaces or tabs to nudge it. Is there a way to do this maybe?
