Hey all Grin I'm currently working on modifying a Java tutorial (found here) to have a GUI, to be able to connect to more servers, to be able to choose if your the server or client, and to have info about the server or client your connected to. So this is my first attempt at networking in Java (or at all) and it's slow going. Right now I'm still not sure if I'm getting the correct IP Address or Host Name, and I can't to connect to a server with out typing <Computer Name>.local ("ZMans-PC.local" for example) but this part might be me not putting it in correctly. I could also use some help figuring out how to style the text output in the chat window, like bold and italic and what not, so help there would be nice as well (I'm using a JTextArea atm). This isn't really gaming related, and it's a lot of source code to look through (at least to me) so I'll understand if nobody wants to help Smiley I just prefer these forums to so I thought I'd ask for help here. BUT if anyone has suggestions/criticism/whatever please share, and let me know if I should post anything else about it.


EDIT: I forgot to mention when you run the program, if you click IP Info on the startup screen then it's just your IP Address and Host Name and then it exits. Also if anyone wants me to comment the source and try to explain what I'm doing (no promises xD) I gladly will... just not right now Smiley

EDIT 2: I fixed everything.

I cant help all the way at the moment but as for the styling of the text box, the problem with using a JTextArea you can not stylize individual lines of text, if you want the text to be bold all of the text will be bold. I believe you can use a JEditorPane to stylize text in a better way though.

Thanks, I got some pretty simple Styles working with a JTextPane which I found because of your suggestion about the JEditorPane so you put me on the right track Smiley It'll take some re-writing but it works. I'll update the source shortly.
