TextArea : Java Glossary


a multiline display of text on the screen. Sometimes you permit the user to edit it. You can control where the line breaks are by embedding '\n' characters in your text. The Swing equivalent is called a JTextArea.

Without any coding, with AWT, the user can select, copy and paste, even in an unsigned Applet. However, Applets must be signed for copy/paste to work in Swing. Copy/paste works in Swing without signing for applications.
