Hi,

I'm using a JList to display a string, but the string is separated by tabs into different fields. The JList doesnt recognise the tabs, and shows all the fields without spaces between them. To address this issue I used below code.

This code is working but the problem is if we have 3 tab characters in a single string only first tab character is getting replaced with the given width of tab stop other tab charecters are not getting replaced with the given width of tab stop.

Because you only set 1 tab stop. If you have 3 tabs then you need 3 tab stops.

Can't we repeat single tab stop for multiple tabs?

How can we achieve this?

I tried like having multiple tabs of same width


But still I am getting one tab stop only. I want to have only one tab stop and it should get repeated for multiple tabs.

If my string is "t\th\tr\te\te"
and if I define tab stop like this


All \ts in the above string should get replaced with a blank space of width of 10 pixels.
