Is there a way to put text into an indeterminate JProgress bar like can be done for a determinate bar? I have a progress bar that will never be determinate and it just looks too naked. I use it to indicate to the user that something is happening. When it is over I just set the bar to invisible. TIA.

Perfect. Thanks. It was the setStringPainted that I didn't find.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
