Hi All,

I have JBuilder5, personal edition, and I want to show and copy what I see in output of the applet now using  System.out.println("StringWhatEver");

I know how to use and can see it in:
   
public void paint(Graphics g) {
g.setColor(Color.blue);
g.drawString("StringWhatEver", 150, 10);
}

I want to show it inside a scroll box  in an applet so that the user  can higlight the outout  and copy the information.
A small example would be appreciated.

why not put a textarea on the applet and do something like:
TextArea myTextArea = new TextArea("StringWhatever", 5, 10, TextArea.SCROLLBARS_VERTICAL_ONLY);

and if you want to copy some selected text:

String strText = myTextArea.getSelectedText();

bobbit31,

I have tried your answer and I have tried to extend it to include more than one text line.


I have used myTextArea.append to write the next line. What results is that the next line is not left justified and if copied shows the entire text as a single string. Is there a command to get it to be left justified in the second line, so that the next line and the one above it are on seperate lines?

bobbit31,
 
Got it!!
 
This thing "\n" causes the next line to be left justified as in:
myTextArea.append("First String");
myTextArea.append("\nSecond String");

And now after a run, a higlight over the text in the applet text area and a control 'c',then pasting it into a .txt form shows that each line is now left justified.
