I have a JTextArea in a GUI which will have appended lines of text during the operation of the GUI, but I also want the users to be able to remove the first added line of text. Each line has been appeneded using a newline.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Tks,
Owen.

You could try using String.split() or StringTokenizer on the "\n" or "\n\r" as delimeters.  Then you will have each line of the JTextArea to manipulate as you see fit.

That is what I was talking about.

Give this a try to test out your code. :)

If you find that you are getting line breaks in the result, then you should split on "\n\r" which is carriage return and line feed.
String myString = "My test\nstring has line breaks\nin it.\n";

		String[] myArray = myString.split("\n");

		

		for (String s : myArray) {

			System.out.println(s);

		}

Open in new window
