Hello Experts,

Please see code below:

//counts the total number of lines
Document doc = logArea.getDocument();
int ctr=0;
ElementIterator elmIt = new ElementIterator(doc.getDefaultRootElement());
 while((elmIt.next() != null)){
      ctr++;
 } // works ok

//how do I index each of the lines? so I can reference a line using an int

Thanks for all of your help...

regards,

Try this.
Document doc = logArea.getDocument();
int ctr=0;
ArrayList<Element> lines = new ArrayList<Element>();
ElementIterator elmIt = new ElementIterator(doc.getDefaultRootElement());

while((elmIt.next() != null)){
    lines.add(elmIt.current());
    ctr++;
} // works ok

lines.get(0); // gets the first line

Open in new window


I hope this helps.
