Problem in ScrollPane's paint() method

I am trying to write a file in to a ScrollPane, i had given a option that
user uses FileDialog to choose. everything is working fine. but the problem is,
the user has to drag the scrollpane's scrollbar to display the file first.
i dont know why this happens.
i found that ,whenever i chose a file from menubar, the setFile() method
changes the file, but that is not reflected in the paint() method. but when
i drag the scrollbar, the file gets into the paint() method. what shoul i do
so that whenever i choose a file from FileDialog, directly gets into the ScrollPane's
paint() method.
here is my code

place a repaint() method call at the end of the setFile() method. Maybe this will work.
