Hi there,

I have a JTextArea with JScrollPane. The jTextArea shows data from a thread that runs in the background. Problem is that when new data comes I need to scroll down in order to see the new data. Question: how to automatically scroll so the bottom of the jTextArea will always shown?

Thanks!
