    Default Dynamic Multi-Colored Text

    Hey guys. I've been reading tutorials on JEditorPane and JTextPane but i can't figure out how to do what I want. I have a client and server chat program where I want the chatDisplay to appear in different colors. The chatDisplay gets appended every time an event happens such as someone joining or leaving or someone types something. How can I make this work?

    Can you show what you've tried, preferably in a small compilable and runnable program? That way we'll all have something we can work with as a starting basis. Also what type of styled document are you using?

    I haven't tried using styled document yet because I don't understand how it would work in my situation (where the chatDisplay needs to get updated with new information). I am currently using a JTextArea.

    The tutorials have sample demo code that compiles and runs, I suggest that you start there as that's always a good place to start.
