I'm fairly new to Swing so sorry if this is too simple. I there build in ability to find text inside a JTEXT area? I know I can do a getText() and search for a string but this seem cludgy. can anyone share a better solution?
Thanks,
Dean

something like..
<pre>
int index=textArea.getText().indexOf(searchString);
textArea.setSelectionStart(index);
textArea.setSelectionEnd(searchString.length());
textArea.select(index,textArea.getSelectionEnd());
</pre>
