Hi All

I have a basic class i've written extending AbstractTextEditor. I use it only to display text files, not to edit them.
I want that when the text contains links (or paths like /usr/bin/mydir) - they will be clickable and i can control what happens when user clicks on them. If they can be drawn in another color, it's even better.

How can I do that?

Thanks, D.

Use a JEditorPane with HTML text. Then you can use a HyperLinkListener to listen for the link events. Don't forget to make the JEditorPane non-editable.
