Okay, this should be an easy one to answer, but I just can't figure it out...
I have a JTextArea that I am appending text to. I put it inside a JScrollPane so that I can get a scroll bar. The problem is that when I get enough text in the JTextArea for the scrollbar to appear, I would like the visible area of the JTextArea to display the new text that I just appended, and shift off the top line of the old text off.
Sumarizing...all I want is for the JTextArea to automatically scroll down as I add more text.
JTextArea statusBox = new JTextArea("Welcome!"+'\n');
JScrollPane scrollBox = new JScrollPane(statusBox);
String text = "....";
statusBox.append(text + '\n');
