    Default Java Program to add scroll bars to JTextArea using JScrollPane

    With this code you can add scrolling capabilities to a JTextArea using JScrollPane.

    import javax.swing.JFrame;
    import javax.swing.JScrollPane;
    import javax.swing.JTextArea;
     
    public class ScrollingTextArea extends JFrame {
     
    	JTextArea txt = new JTextArea();
    	JScrollPane scrolltxt = new JScrollPane(txt);
     
    	public ScrollingTextArea() {
     
    		setLayout(null);
     
    		scrolltxt.setBounds(3, 3, 300, 200);
    		add(scrolltxt);		
    	}
     
     
    	public static void main(String[] args) {
     
    		ScrollingTextArea sta = new ScrollingTextArea();
    		sta.setSize(313,233);
    		sta.setTitle("Scrolling JTextArea with JScrollPane");
    		sta.show();		
    	}
     
    }

    The compiled code will create this:



    The scroll bars come into action when the text inside the JTextArea goes beyond its boundaries.
