Hello,
I haved added a JPanel to a JScrollPane. The JPanel contains multiple JTextFields arrayed vertically (using a GridBagLayout). When I tab from one JTextField to another, I would like the JScrollPane to scroll down to display the JTextField that currently has the focus.
Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks,
-Jeff Wisard

First, Jeff, please change your user name from jwisard to something that follows the JavaRanch Username Convention like Jeff Wisard...

Next... on to the problem... it sounds simple enough to solve... Just add a FocusListener to your JTextFields that looks something like the following...



However, the behavior of scrollRectToVisible( Rectangle ) sometimes breaks... so you'll have to mess with it to get something appropriate to your layout... ( The following listener almost works perfectly with the previous code... it still jumps around a bit more than I like, though... )



-Nate
