I have a JTextPane that i have added som text in, this text is to the left, by this i dont get the horizontal scrollbara available.

I am drawing some drwaings in this JTextPane and need to be abled to scrool horizontal to see all the drawings.

How do i do this? i know that JPane have a prefersize witch works fine, but JTextPane does not respond on this method?

How do i solve this?

JTextPane does not have scrollbars. You have to use a JScrollPane.

Yes i use JScrollbars, exacly as i do to the JPane, but in the jpane i can set the preferedsize and the horizontal jscoolbar will be activated, this does not wokr in JTextPane.

I have tryed before to set values to the JScroolbar but this wount work, maby you could show me?

As i said, i can get the vertical scroolbars active by adding text but to activet the hrozontal whene there is no text simes hard?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
