    Default displaying string

    hi,

    i'm quite new in java, just started to program in swing. one problem i really couldnt solve is that i have a string which i used to display output messages in text mode, it was alligned by adding spaces to them, however it doesnt work in graphical mode cos the spaces have a narrower width than the characters, so the columns are crooked, even if i try to display it in text box. any idea how i could solve it without reconstructing the original output?

    thanks for your help,
    tom

    Try using a monospaced font.

    Smile What about tabs?

    You can try using tabs.

    You can align text of different fonts by using tabs. The escape character for a tab is "\t".
    Eyes dwelling into the past are blind to what lies in the future. Step carefully.
