    Try a JTextArea as opposed to a TextArea. You should avoid mixing Swing and AWT components (see the following as to why: Mixing heavy and light components ).

    I have no clue what you mean by this or your previous post. You've failed to provide your current code, what you mean by 'display', whether you are now using a JTextArea, and anything else you may have done
