I'm having some problems understanding how components are sized and I hope someone can help clear them up for me.

I have a panel which is using a BorderLayout. I have a panel in WEST and a panel in CENTER. The panel in CENTER contains a JScrollPane which contains a JTextPane. It seems like no matter what I do the scroll pane and the text pane all appear very small, about one line high and one character across. I want it to fill the entire region.

I am almost embarrassed to ask the question because I suspect it is very easy to solve, but I'm also new at Swing. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to get the component to fill up the region?

Thanks,

Robert

Your panel in CENTER should also use BorderLayout. The JScrollPane should be in the CENTER of this panel.
