math and GUI
Hello,
can anyone suggest on a simple as possible GUI tool \ method
that i can work with mathematical symbols \ equations with?
my goal is to be able to create equations on screen such as
____________
√(x+5)*(x311)
in other words i would like to be able to put root sign over a given equation.
more over i would like to be able to create a display with:
x² (degrees)
IMPORTANT:
i would like that tool to get as an input strings such as:
sqrt((x+5)*(x311)) , x^2
and get that output above
thanks!

Are you wanting to do this alone? Or do you just want a tool to do it for you? It should be fairly simple to do, create a bunch of constants that know how to draw themselves, and do what's necessary from there. Perhaps an enum will be helpful, where each item has a name representation and the ability to draw itself.

since wer'e taking about a very basic notions it is only reasonable to think someone already created it .
so i will prefer to use an already built tool \class
i will be extremely surprised if no such tool exists.

I agree, it probably does exist, I don't know of any java based ones though. Latex is nice for stuff mathematical, but it's not java based.
