      Description



      Name: skT45625 Date: 05/10/2000


      java -version
      java version "1.3beta"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.3beta-O)
      Java(TM) HotSpot Client VM (build 1.3beta-O, mixed mode)

      JTextArea.getPreferredSize returns results that seem to work differently from
      what the renderer for the object are expecting, and so, anamolous pictures
      result. I have not looked at any of the rendering code, to see if this is
      exactly what is wrong, but the behavior seems to confirm the connection.

      Another way to state this, is getPreferredSize does not return the actual size
      used by the renderer to paint the component when the other sides are messed up.

      Compile and run the accompanying code. It creates 4 Frames, the first frame "No
      Border" renders fine, the second frame "with border" does not. The accompanying
      lower button is hidden, because with the border included, the rendering code (I
      believe, I've not looked at it in detail) thinks it needs an additional row,
      over what getPreferredSize indicated.

      The frame "My Fix" shows how getPreferredSize can be fixed for this part of the
      problem.

      However, the frame "Another Problem" shows that the problems of the function are
      deeper than what I've just indicated, because, again, the button is rendered off
      the bottom of the visible part of the frame, because the preferred number of
      rows is wrong given the text contained within.
