Dear Friends,
I have a problem with JTextArea.I've defined the JTextArea constructor with 2rows and 2 cols.Now when i enter text into it and press enter key again and again, then instead of an appreance of a scrollbar the area of the JtextArea keep increasing, this results in the shrinking of other JtextField/JTextarea.
Can we Fix this area Of the JTextArea anyhow/or is there any other way to solve this problem?
Thanx

Hi,
Have you defined a scroll pane to put the text area into? If not, try somethign like this:
//Create a new JScrollPane
JScrollPane scrollPane = new JScrollPane();
//Add the JTextArea to the JScrollPane
scrollPane.setViewportView(my_troublesome_text_area);
//Add the JScrollPane to the main content pane for the frame
mainContentPane.add(scrollPane);
Hope this helps!
cheers, Ben.
