    You need to use another JTextArea method: append(...)

    Java Code:
    area.setText("\n" + c);
    area.append("Number of lines " + x);
    ...

    I don;t think you can use appen on JTextArea.
    If not try it on TextArea (not JTextArea)

    Straight from the API documentation for the JTextArea class:

    void append(String str)
    Appends the given text to the end of the document.
    About that TextArea, that's an AWT thing; you don't want to go there.

    kind regards,

    Jos

    From what do you base this recommendation on?

    Myself, I agree with the other recommendations: it is fine to use append with JTextArea.
