Hi Ranchers,
Here is my requirement, I parse a text file and currently displaying to a JTextArea.

But I got a new requirement to highlight few words from the text file while displaying to the user. What container I should use JEditorPane or JTextPane. Or is there a way to do it with Highlighter class in the JTextArea itself?

Any ideas would help me big time.

Regards

Any one will do depending on your requirement.
Both extend JTextComponent which has getHighlighter() which will be helpful to you.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
