Ok. I am displaying a simple text string with tab characters on a JOptionPane MessageDialog. But when displays the string, it displays a square instead of tabbing.

Any ideas how to overcome this problem.?


String testString = "Hello \t My Freind";

JOptionPane.ShowMessageDialog(null, testString, "Any Title", JOptionPane.PLAIN_MESSAGE);

Try with html code instead of plain text.

String tab = "&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp";
String testString = "<html>Hello " + tab + " My Friend</html>";

hi ovi,
if there is no other way except to put the spaces, why dont we put it directly instead of html code.
String testString="Hello   Friend";

No reason, perhaps only because html code offers a variety of possibilities in formating the text.
