There's something I'd like to do with my JTextPane, but I don't know if it's possible without too much fooling around.
When a line of text is entered into the JTextPane the foreground and the background of the entered message are coloured. All of that works fine, but if possible I would like to also fill the remaining white space of the line the same colour as the existing background, just to make everything look nicer. I would also want the background colour to stretch if the window is stretched, as the JTextPane stretches
This is how I'm going about it.
SimpleAttributeSet attrs = new SimpleAttributeSet();
SimpleAttributeSet attrs2 = new SimpleAttributeSet();
Document doc = conversion.getDocument();
FileCredential credential = ((ClientService)pixecurFile).getCredential();
conversion.getDocument().insertString(doc.getLength(), credential.userData(FileCredential.USER_NAME) + " Says: ", attrs);
conversion.getDocument().insertString(doc.getLength(), now("yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss aa")+"\n", attrs2);
conversion.getDocument().insertString(doc.getLength(), " " + chatMessage.getText()+"\n", attrs);
I'm willing to bet that there is no clean way to go about what I'm looking to do, but I hope I'm wrong.
Also, I don't think this matters, but the JTextPane in question is inside of a JScrollPane.
Thanks in advance,
