      JTextArea cannot be used as a renderer in JTable - scrolltoVisiblie technology
      fails in this context.
      Please see the following code to reproduce this bug.

      The test took JTextArea as the CellRenderer of the first column. The table didn't show right.

      import java.awt.*;
      import java.awt.event.*;
      import com.sun.java.swing.*;
      import com.sun.java.swing.border.*;
      import com.sun.java.swing.table.*;

      public class TableCellRenderTest extends JFrame
          static public void main( String[] args )
              TableCellRenderTest t = new TableCellRenderTest();

          String[][] data =
              { "one", "two", "three" },
              { "four", "five", "six" },
              { "seven", "eight", "nine" },
              { "ten", "eleven", "twelve" },
              { "thirteen", "fourteen", "fifteen"},
              { "sixteen", "seventeen", "eighteen" },
              { "ninteen", "twenty", "twenty one" },
              { "twenty two", "twenty three", "twenty four" }

          String[] colnames = { "column 1", "column 2", "column 3" };

          JTable table = new JTable( data, colnames );

          static private String clear = "Clear";
          static private String repaint = "Force Repaint";

          public TableCellRenderTest()
              JScrollPane sp = JTable.createScrollPaneForTable( table );

              JPanel topPanel = new JPanel();
              topPanel.setLayout( new BorderLayout() );
              topPanel.setBorder( new EmptyBorder( 10, 10, 10, 10 ) );
              table.setBackground( topPanel.getBackground() );

              JPanel buttonPanel = new JPanel();

              topPanel.add( sp, BorderLayout.CENTER );
              topPanel.add( buttonPanel, BorderLayout.SOUTH );

              getContentPane().add( topPanel );

      TableCellRenderer myRenderer = new CustomCellRenderer();
      table.getColumn("column 1").setCellRenderer(myRenderer);

        class CustomCellRenderer
          // extends JLabel
          extends JTextArea
          //extends JTextField
          implements TableCellRenderer

          public Component getTableCellRendererComponent( JTable table,
      Object value, boolean isSelected,
      boolean hasFocus,
      int row, int column )
            setText( "Row=" + row );
            return this;

      Subject: The JTextArea as cell renderer is having problem....
      Date: Thu, 02 Apr 1998 17:34:29 -0800

      Hi ,
      I am trying to user JTextArea as TableCellRenderer and seems that it
      load the table fine at first time..... But some event occurs and the
      table gets reshuffled... The first column vanishes and the scrollpane
      displays one column less than total number of columns....

      Following is the source code....

      Am I doing something wronge.....?

      Let me know...

      Thanks in advance....
