    Default Embedding a hyperlink within a JFrame

    I've googled through this, but every example try's to show how to read the hyperlink's url inside a swing component which is pretty stupid, I'm after an example/explanation of how I can embed a hyperlink in say a JText field so when the user click's on it, it will open that link up in their default browser, I have no idea how to go about this, help much appreicated.

    Default Re: Embedding a hyperlink within a JFrame

    Im not all that great at these things. But i do know that JLabel supports HTML, and it would not be that hard to present it that way.
    also, check this out... Bare Bones Browser Launch for Java • Use Default Browser to Open a Web Page from a Swing Application

    Again, I'm not that knowledgeable, so there may very well be a way to do it within a JText.
