scrollpane problem

  Asked By: Zobah    Date: May 22    Category: Java    Views: 479
  

When you, say , got 50 lines of messages where the text area can show 20
lines of messages, it always shows the first 20 lines of messages not the
last 20 lines of messages. I want it to show the last 20 lines everytime a
new message arrives. Is there a way to set the pane or textarea to do the
job like i have described.

following is the source code:
