How To Set Dynamic Height Of TextArea Based On Width In Java FX 2

I wish Oracle simply included this feature so developers would not have to code it from scratch. However, I came across a custom made class called ScrollFreeTextArea from the javafx-demos website.

This class simply did the trick for me. So whenever you type a long text and it wraps itself or press the ENTER key for a new line, the height of the TextArea increases without displaying the scrollbar.

Here is the complete source code.

  1. Thank for the code!
    One question: if I set max height for scrollfreetextarea, then enter very long text, how do I set scrolling automatically to the end of the text?
