Hi Dev Prakash,

/* Declares JScrollPane reference scroller and initializes with a
new JScrollPane object. */
JScrollPane scroller = new JScrollPane (outputArea);
scroller.setBackground(Color.pink);
scroller.setForeground(Color.magenta);
/* Get the applet's GUI component display area and attaches the
scroller to the Container c. */
Container c = getContentPane();
c.add(scroller);

Hi dev prakash,
Sorry previous message was incomplete.
You can use JScrollPane class to solve your problem.
Follow this code :-
JTextArea outputArea = new JTextArea(10,20);
/* Declares JScrollPane reference scroller and initializes with a
new JScrollPane object. */
JScrollPane scroller = new JScrollPane (outputArea);
scroller.setBackground(Color.pink);
scroller.setForeground(Color.magenta);
/* Get the applet's GUI component display area and attaches the
scroller to the Container c. */
Container c = getContentPane();
c.add(scroller);
May be it helps you !
Take care
Prasanth Tata

Thanks Prasanth Tata,
This solutions works, but I wanted to just work with AWT Components and not Swing.
I can attach a panel to applet and scrollpane to panel and all other components to scrollpane. And it works fine, BUT I wanna know if we can directly attach scroll bar to applet.
