Subject Re: Support for display of rich text?
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2011 07:22:03 GMT

There was a major reworking of TextArea for Pivot 2.0.
Some info is listed on the wiki here.

PIVOT-555 Re-implement TextArea
PIVOT-31 Add rich text support to TextPane (formerly TextArea)

There is a demo application for TextPane in the demos project which is
included in the Pivot 2,0 source download, or directly from SVN

As mentioned on the wiki, TextPane is relatively new and untested.  We would
welcome JIRA tickets for any bugs/improvements you may find, or better yet,
patches addressing them!
