We have an existing swing application and I have to customize its one of screen. The screen is divided into several parts and each part is being declared as a JPanel. I have to show a file into a particular area which would be scrollable. So now the problem is that I have to add scrolling into the existing JPanel. I tried adding JScrollPane to JPanel but didnt succeed. I read that we have to add JPanel into JScrollPane to achieve the desired result but in my case its not possible. I dont have much idea about swing. Can anyone help me out of this?
Thanks in advance.
If you want to add scrolling possibilities to a JPanel you need to add the JPanel to a JScrollPane, not vice versa. The JPanel's preferred size will determine when the scroll bars are needed and how large they will be.
