How to : absolute (x,y) of the caret ?

How can I get the exact (x,y) Point location of the caret?
(I need it to draw around the caret with awt)

I tried this,

CaretModel caret = editor.getCaretModel();
Point point = editor.logicalPositionToXY (caret.getLogicalPosition() );

but it doesn't work :
- horizontal offset (always)
- vertical offset (when you use the scrollbar)

Alain, your code is quite right though
editor.visualPositionToXY(caret.getVisualPosition()) would be slightly
faster.

Just keep in mind point is returned in coordinate system of
editor.getContentComponent().

Am I miss something?

Of course, absolute coordinates may be fetched via
SwingUtilities.convertPointToScreen.

My mistake : I was using
Graphics graphics = editor.getComponent().getGraphics();

Not, it works fine with
Graphics graphics = editor.getContentComponent().getGraphics();

Thanks.
