Hi im creating a mobile phone application that sends messages across the network.. Anyways, the question im asking is how do i put an image as the background for a JTextArea, so that when i view it the image is in the background of the JTextArea, and i can write in the JTextArea as usual with the image in the background (just for visual effects basically).

Any advice?

Thanks,
Phoinix

You will probably need to write your own textarea class.
