Changing component inside a JScrollPane

Hi, I have a JScrollPane with the Horizontal ScrollBar set to come on as needed.

I want to be able to remove the component (JPanel) added to scrollpane, and then add a different one (say a larger one),
and have the scrollbar update itself so I can then view all of the new component, but I'm not sure how to do it other than perhaps just rebuilding a new ScrollPane, and I guess I'll have to add this into the JPanel its in again too.

Any thoughts? Thanks

JScrollPane.setViewportView for changing the component, then call revalidate() and repaint() to enforce that the scroll bars are reset correctly.

Thanks, I got it to work using:



I'm not sure if thats what you meant.

It also appears to work using either of setViewPortView or revalidate, so I'm not sure.
I guess I'll stick with what I've got above.

That's exactly what I meant. revalidate() and repaint() may not be needed, but sometimes you do need them when you modify your user interface at runtime so I always add them.
