Hello ,
I am using JTextArea in that i need to show HORIZONTAL SCROLLBAR & VERTICAL SCROLLBAR so i used VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS & HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS as argument while defining JSrollPane but i need to show that vertical & horizontal scroll bar as in disabled state but it remain in enable state .

Thanks ..........

Hi Shekhar,
Why go for that kind of stuff when you have a facility of using VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED and HORIZONTAL SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED. That way you can make your application have scrollbars visible only when the size of the text in the JTextArea exceeds it's boundaries.

I feel thats a better way to implement Scrollbars in JTextArea.

Hope it helps.
