Making a java.awt.TextArea wrappable

Has anyone done anything with the java.awt.TextArea to make it word wrap?  I am trying to find some tips on how to go about doing this.  Thanks.

Hm, look like only way is to override
all text content changing methods in textArea
and wrap it manually using getColumns()
and re-splitting rows, than call superclass methods.
