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.
