hi, im fairly new to Java, been a VB programmer for quiet a while, now im starting to learn java and im struggling with the UI swing components.

my particular problem is the JTree class. Im using a custrom cell renderer which i learned from one of the Java Tips posted here . I managed to place two JLabel on it, much like the samples, but how do i make it look like the one in Pidgin?
the nodes on pidgin has an icon on the left side, then 2 rows of text, then another icon to the right.

im trying to make a yahoo messenger client based on jYMSG API.

Any help would be deeply appreciated.
