    Default Embedding an image in textbox

    Is this even possible? I would like to make it so I can drag drop an image into a textbox . . .
    does anyone know of any tutorials or example code for this? Thanks in advance.

    If a textbox is supposed to hold text, what will it do with an image? Show the image's filename?

    Microsoft word is an example of what you can do - drag-drop an image into it, and the image itself
    shows up within the text. That is what I would like to be able to do. I have been able to do that
    with a rich text box, (Microsoft Visual Basic), but I am wondering if Java has that capability.

    I was thinking of the JTextArea class.
    I think the JTextPane class will display images and text. Have you tried that?
