Hi there

In my JTextArea, I would like to add some padding to the inside of the JTextArea so that the text is not so close to the border. I have looked on the internet but I can't seem to find the answer. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Many kind regards,
Rachel

Or perhaps less fragile:

JTextArea ta = new JTextArea(20,30);
ta.setMargin(new Insets(10,10,10,10));
