JScrollPane Scrolling Problem

Hi,

I have a very frustrating problem that i have been working on for several hours with no success. I basically want a panel on which i draw an image (using graphics.drawimage). I want to be able to zoom into the image (by making the panel bigger and drawing a bigger image on it), and when the image panel gets bigger than the window, scroll bars appear.

I have got this partially working, however when the panel is larger than the window and i try increasing the size even more, the scrollbars do not adjust to the new size. And also, when i reduce the size from very large (but still bigger than the window) the scroll bars do not change.

Im sorry if i havent explained myself very well!

Here's some sample code:

            CONSTUCTOR:
            .....
            JPanel imagePane = new JPanel;
            imagePane.parent = this;
            previewScroller = new JScrollPane(imagePane);
            .....

When i try to resize the image i do this:

            INSIDE THE JPANEL [imagePane]:
            .....
            this.setPreferredSize(new Dimension(newWidth(), newHeight()));
            repaint(); // calls a overridden paint method that draws an image onto the panel
            parent.previewScroller.revalidate(); // SHOULD sort out the scrollbars!
            ......

I'm really not sure why its not working! I hope someone can shed some light on this. If you need any more information just let me know.

Thanks, Mike

What is the class extending of w.r.t .setPreferredSize.
You must avoid to set a size for the component that you got a viewport of.
If the image grows, its component must grow to enclose it.
Apply:
        .pack();
on it.

;JOOP!
