Hi! I need to have a JTextArea that is resizable. I have it placed in a JScrollPane. I change the columns based on some business rules.

The resizing works great if I place it in BorderLayout.Center or in FlowLayout. However, if I place it in BoxLayout or other layouts it simply fills the size available.

Problem with the BoxLayout and FlowLayout is that the scrolling is really slow. I guess they refresh every time I move the scroll bar, where as the other layouts scroll much more quickly but are not respecting my column sizes.

Any help is appreciated.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
