    Default Chat window autoscroll lockes scrollbar at buttom

    Hi, I'm writing an instant chat client (for practice), I use netbeans 6.8 on ubuntu 10.04.

    My chat window contains a JTextPane enclosed in a JScrollBar, to get auto adjustment of the vertical scrollbar I use the following code:

    Java Code:
    jScrollPane1.getVerticalScrollBar().addAdjustmentListener(new AdjustmentListener(){
                public void adjustmentValueChanged(AdjustmentEvent e) {
    It works, but it forces the scrollpane to the buttom - can't go up again to see it.
    I did see many solutions for this problem, but they all seem to go around and adjust the visible area according to the textPane/textarea, creating ton of new problems on the way. Adjusting the visible area by the scrollbar of the scrollpane should be the right way to do it, but I can't find a way to stop it from forcing thw visible area down.

    Doe's anyone know a solution for that?
