    Default Java: Links, images, font and divisions with HTML / CSS

    Hey,

    I have a big concern about coding a nice UI for my upcoming CompSci project after winter break, and it will be a card game. However, I've already programmed several card games with PHP, so the only thing that would be left is the actual GUI for my JFrame window. I want to display a rich HTML-Based JFrame, with links, entire headers, and divisions made up of HTML and CSS (real code, and not only displaying the source code!). I've googled a lot, and most websites were pointing on web browsers, therefore I've started asking here, if anyone knows how to begin, which import is responsible for it, and which statements I need to use to add it to my JFrame.

    As an example this: myimg.de - kostenloses Bilderhosting.

    If it's still hard to understand what my concern is, - it's impossible to draw a string from an actionPerformed method, therefore I need to use HTML code in order to display public or private Strings within the class.

    It would be an awesome help if there's anyone,

    Regards

    If I understand correctly, you want a java swing component that can display html like a web browser? JEditorPane's have the capability for basic html and css, but I'd say the capability is a bit limited.
    it's impossible to draw a string from an actionPerformed method
    Not sure what you mean...this capability is relatively easy if the actionPerformed method calls on another JPanel, setting a string variable and calling repaint to draw the string.

    Well, not exactly a web browser, but to display real time HTML/CSS code within my JFrame, so that I can work without Java, and more designing better frames.
