Nice job. It works for me and resizes now, which is nice.
In addition it habegabe's suggestion
I would make this change as well:
In your getTime method in the Main class you have a large switch statement.
I would have done this:
String[] months = {"Jan", "Feb", "Mar", "Apr", "May", "June", "July", "Aug", "Sept", "Oct", "Nov", "Dec" };
String monthName = months[now.get(Calendar.MONTH) ];



But that's just me. I go out of my way to avoid if/switch statements.

nText is picking up because a developer has joined (on SourceForge) and is working on a syntax highlighter.

Because I'm starting to learn Java and wanted to know the best environment.

a text editor, syntax highlighting is nice.
Windows: textpad, notepad++, crimson edit
Mac: TextWrangler, XCode
Linux: Kate, KDevelop, Gedit

vim

I find that most Java oriented IDE's are written in Java (at least the interface) and are very slow and so I tend to do most Java editing in a normal text editor

I've made nText available via CVS (on SourceForge) now so you can go nuts!

Just letting everyone know that nText is open if anyone wants to join. Artists, developers or anyone that can help is welcome.

We're currently working on a syntax highlighter (almost complete) and making version 0.6 stable. So if you want to join either reply on this thread, pm me or email me :)

I took a look at it and I must say that it looks pretty good so far! What new features are you planning for it?

Some features that are in development/planning are: Code completion, file properties being displayed, intelligent syntax higlighting (it can tell what the file type is and determan what syntax highlighter should be used), full-screen mode (it's semi-completed) and maybe some other things (those are all the things I can think of now) :)

Is there a full feature list anywhere? I'd be interested to see it. :^:
