Hi all,
Whenever I enter long text in JTextField it truncates characters from left and displays the right most characters only. Is there any way to change the order of displaying the text in order from LEFT to RIGHT instead of RIGHT to LEFT.

Kindly provide your valuable comments !!!
Thanks and regards...

are you talking about as you enter text? seems a silly requirement
to have text go 'out-of-sight' on the right, so you can't see what
you've typed.

or is it a paste action you want to have the initial characters shown?
if so, something like this

Thanks for replying!!!
I was talking about the case when we type a long string in JTextField or when we set text using JTextField.setText("Long String") method....
Only the left most characters get visible.I have a requirment that in such case i want to see the text from the start,it should truncate from the right end.
thanks
