JScrollPane auto scroll question

Hi, I really find this in google but I couldn't find and answer....

I have a JScrollPane with internal panels, which have thier components, the proble is that if I get to one of this components by pressing "tab" and the component wasn't visible the JScrollPane doesn't do autoscroll to show the selected component.

Any ideas, thanks a lot.

You could try getting the bounds of the (tabbed–to) component with 'getBounds' and then call 'scrollRectToVisible(bounds)' on its parent. You may have to move the 'scrollRectToVisible' call to a parent higher up in the hierarchy, somewhere between the components parent and the view (child) component of the scrollPane. Depends on how you've put things together.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
