Scrollbar in textarea of a panel dissappears

I have created a tabbed pane app that works great for what I need except for one major issue. I have copied the snippet code below. It seems when I select the file to be displayed it pasted in the textarea but no scrollbars are added and I can't see all of the data. I thought by creating a Panel and adding that to the tabbed pane I wold be fine. Then in the created panel I would create a textarea and add scrollbars to it. Alas no work. Any help is appreciated.

No scrollbars are added because you never created a JScrollPane object for the JTextArea.

Thanks for the tip and your suggestion of course worked. I realized my ignorance of the complete understanding of the code I was using. I thought the eText.setAutoScroll(true); would do the same thing but realized that method is for JComponets and not for the manner I was using it in.

Thanks for the help and showing me the right way as well as for helping me learn the api better.
