I have a class which extends JPanel. 2D images are drawn on it dynamically, as are components added to it. The problem is that when an instance of this object is added to the window:
getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(myPanel));
I don't get the scroll bars when components are added to it dynamically below the viewport. Help!!!

You'll have to modify the preferred size of the component when you add shapes. You'll also need to call parent.validate() to force the scroll pane to redraw...

I think I have an example here.
