Scroll inside styledText

Recently I made an swt application with an styledtext inside of it. I use the styledtext.setText() method to make the styledText to display a lot of lines. The problem is that the styledText keeps showing the beginning of the list of lines, and it does not scroll down until the last character.
Is there a way to make it scroll down after using the setText method? Thanks!

2) Set the value of the vertical JScrollBar to its maximum.
3) ??
