I have a text editor that uses a JTextArea that I've created.  I have a menu bar and a toolbar.  What do I need to call to use the copy/cut/page/select all features?

Obviously I can press CTRL+A to select all the text, but I cannot press my toolbar button and simulate that.

Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks

Hi;

Its quite easy you just have to call cut(), copy(), paste(), selectAll(); methods its already built-in in Java.
You may also wanna see my donated codes for an example :

Use the text areas getActions() method to get the actions defined for it (such as cut,copy,paste) and add them to your toolbar:

Action[] actions = textarea.getActions();
for (int i=0; i<actions.length; i++)
{
    toolbar.add(actions[i]);
}
