Hi, I have been struggling with this problem for over 4 days. I have a jtree. I have a 'New' button . When i click on the new button, a new node will be added to the tree. I want this node to be in italics. It is something like an IDE, where any changes to the file makes it into italic in the document window(I hope you understand me).When i save, the node in italics should get back to normal font. I have been trying it with label and stuff, but no avail....Please help!!!
