Hi guys,

here is the deal: i have a text (String) to print and it does not have any \n (new line). it is embeddedin a JTextArea

JTextArea ta = new TextArea();
ta.append(text);

The document (text) is 50 lines but since it is not wraped, the printing result is only 5 lines.

I tried: ta.setWrapStyleWord(true);

Nothing!

anyone?

also, how can I print a jpg?
thanks for any advise.

Ppr

I'd try a Google search for "Java Printing Tutorial".

The first result is:
The Sun Printing Tutorial
It's for Java 1.2, but I don't think too much has changed in the printing API since then -- the general approach described will suffice.

If you have specific problems, let us know and we will be glad to help

Try this for your JTextArea:
ta.append(" "+tr.readLine()+"\n");

jpg as in an image...if so here it is...
//declare globally in class...
Image img;
//in init
imG=getImage(getDocumentBase(),"img.jpg");
//paintComponent
g.drawImage(allpics,0,0,670,630,this);
