I'm trying to implement a text component that has the capacity to emulate a terminal/dos window.

The component will be taking content from a remote system and interpreting it (think remote session)

For straight command line functionality, it works okay, but I need the ability to specify screen coordinates and then write text to it (think good old dos days or curses under *inx)

The reason I want to use a text component is that it already has many of the features I want to use, text highlighting, copy and paste, etc.

What I would like to know is, are there any decent tutorials/examples of developing custom documents, view factories and views. I'm pretty much resigned to the fact that I'm going to have re-implement most of it.

I've been able to "some" of it work, but it's VERY long way from been functional.
