    Exclamation How can I draw a RTF formatted String to a custom JComponent?

    I have my custom JComponent which do a lot of drawing operations.

    They also include drawStrings for text paragraphs, but now Id like to format the text (in a seperate window with jtextpane or another RTF editor) (bold, font-size, align, font-color, lists) and show this formatted text in my own component.

    Id like to do that without bufferedimages because if i have a big jcomponent full with images I would get a stack overflow
    Something like with AttributedString could work, but how?

    I don't really know how to get the RTF-Text out of the Jtextpane (or if there is a better editor plz tell me) and draw it in the "paintComponent(Graphics g)" method.

    The Editor is just used to format the text easily, not for the presentation (which is done with my own component)

    Can anyone help me please?

    Take a look at the AttributedString class
    AttributedString (Java Platform SE 6)
    You can parse the formatting into attributes that can be added to the AttributedString, and a Graphics2D instance can draw the iterator of these String.

    Thanks for your help,

    do you have any sample code how this works in detail? e.g. if i have a 200 words text formatted by an jtextpane. I think the difficulty is to transform the RTF of the jtextpane to an adequate Attributed String...

    Do you have any suggestions?
