I am just getting started with java.

I can't get the textarea to use multiple lines. The 3 rows are displayed but, I am expected an 'enter' key to bring the user to 2nd line.

TextArea ta = new TextArea(5,50);
-this only show a work space but the edited text will not swap to the next line

That's pretty much how it works (in JDK 1.0.2 anyway). You could write your own TextArea class:

public class MyTextArea extends TextArea
{  //do what you want
}

Have fun!

I guess I don't understand the problem. When you are in the first line and press Enter key, you WILL BE in second line.
