JScrollPane – Scrolling Text Grid Panel
Java Swing provides JScrollPane to give scrolling support for the lengthy documents. The document can be a text, html documents or it can be a set of controls arranged in a container.
This example uses a grid of 1000 text boxes. Since we cannot view all the text boxes in the frame window, we give this grid of text boxes to the JScrollPane. Swing’s Scroll Pane component provides vertical & horizontal scroll bars and, using those, the user can scroll the grid and view any text box in the grid. In our example, we number the text boxes in a sequential order.
