Hello,
I have a problem with scroll panes. In my app I have a JFrame that is split vertically into 2 panels using JSplitPane. The two panels added to either side of the split pane are JScrollPanes, because when the split pane bar is moved, or the frame is re-sized, i need both panels to scroll so the user can see all the contents of each side. Fine...but...
In the right hand pane of the split pane I have another panel within the scroll pane containing a JTextArea. This panel also needs to scroll to accommodate input into this text area without changing the size of the displayed text area. It all works fine while I'm typing into the text area - but when the text area looses focus, the scrollbars disappear from the text area's panel and the main scrolling pane for the whole of the right hand side of the frame scrolls instead (i.e. my text area becomes as big as the text it contains, but the main panel it's in scrolls so you can see it all - NOT desirable!). Any ideas on how I can prevent this sort of behaviour anyone?
thanks,
Ben.
