I am trying to have a TextArea that can have text with different fonts,sizes and colours.
I tried with TextArea but did not work. Is there a way to work this out or is there another class for this ?
Thanks

You might have to check out the rfteditorkit to do this:

Yes. I had a look at this before but its in swing. I was wondering if swing api comes with the JRE because if this api is not available on the client's machine then he wouldn't be able to view it. Or would he ? I don't know because I am pretty new to java.
Thanks

You can also check out the ekit applet, which uses the htmleditorkit and can serialize files in rtf. http://www.hexidec.com/ekit.php

The Manning Swing book gives an example of writing a simple word processor in Swing. This might be a good place for you to both accomplish the goal of writing a text editor and learn more about Swing. The book is here, and includes some online chapters: http://www.manning.com/sbe/
