when working in a web app its easy: you keep adding forms, textareas and so on so the webpage has to scroll. My Q: is this possible with a standalone app? i asked because someone showed me one, made in java, where there are several checkboxes, textfields and so on and all this scrolls!!(inside the app) i tried adding a jscrollpane to my app and then add several components to it but it didnt work. How can one do it? thanks in advance
A scroll pane scrolls a single component. You should add your components to a single container (Box, JPanel) and create a JScrollPane instance with it. Take a look at the Java Tutorial on Scroll Panes for more info.
ok, now i see it; my prob now it to force the scroll down - i mean - i want to introduce a lot of components, deep down, but they just dont show; the app's size cut them at the app's bottom Where can i get an example of this working? thanks in advance
