How would I amend the following code so that it had no horizontal scrolling ?

getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(jtextAreaDisplay), BorderLayout.CENTER);

try the following:

yourScroller.setHorizontalScrollBarPolicy(JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_NEVER);

The options are:
    *  JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED
    * JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_NEVER
    * JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_ALWAYS
and the same is available for the vertical scroll bar.

I dont appear able to do that due to the way I have set up my scrollpane:



JTextArea jtextAreaDisplay = new JTextArea();

getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(jtextAreaDisplay), BorderLayout.CENTER);

You can also set these in the constructor, like so:

JScrollPane(Component view, int vsbPolicy, int hsbPolicy)

So for you it would be:

getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(jtextAreaDisplay, JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED, JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_NEVER), BorderLayout.CENTER);


I don't know what is thought to be best practice, but I alway create a named instance for any component I use.  When I don't, I always seem to run into trouble later.

Oops. That should be:

getContentPane().add(new JScrollPane(jtextAreaDisplay, JScrollPane.VERTICAL_SCROLLBAR_AS_NEEDED, JScrollPane.HORIZONTAL_SCROLLBAR_NEVER), BorderLayout.CENTER);

Ok.  So you want to wrap text?  JScrollPane probably isn't the best choice.  Are you filling this with just text?

Why not just use a simple JTextArea?  If you need more features, such as graphics, etc look at JTextPane, or JEditorPane.

Here is the Sun tutorial page where you can get some sample code:
