Hi,

Is there a way to set the horizontal position where text will be added in JTextarea?

I have:
First, Middle, Last name and then Company name.
Ex.
Jay F. Bar                                 Some Company
Ron  G.  McDonald               Some Other Company

I can't get the company names to line up using "\t" - can I set the insertion point for the company name to some line position?

Thanks

Save yourself a lot of hassle (you can only do what you're attempting by using an ugly monospaced font anyway) by using a JTable

How would that be done with a monospaced font?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

How about in the JTextarea with a monospaced font?  I actually like Couriernew.
