How do I make a component visible in the left lower corner of a JScrollPane?

I created some JScrollPane's with widened scrollbars to dimension space for a button on the lower right corner.
Now I need to add a second button. As the corner object has to be a Component, I can't put a JPanel with 2 buttons
in there.
So the second button goes to the other corner:

        scrollPane.setCorner(ScrollPaneConstants.LOWER_RIGHT_CORNER, firstButton);
        scrollPane.setCorner(ScrollPaneConstants.LOWER_LEFT_CORNER, secondButton);

As I don't really need a row header in there, how do I make that button visible
and how do I dimension space for it?

;JOOP!

A JPanel is a subclass of Component so it can be used.

You're right, but in this case it doesn't work: however big the space in the corner, you'll see only 1 button.
Maybe there's a simple solution to it, but as the vertical scrollbar must be widened to "elderly-people-with-sight-problems"
measures, I'd prefer the button on the left.
Any suggestion?

     setRowHeaderView(rowHeader = new JLabel());
      rowHeader.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(width, Integer.MAX_VALUE));

does the job!

I'm not sure and I don't have the time, but I guess setting a fixed size on the JPanel would at least
have done something useful.
So, because I forgot that implication, you are getting your points.
