I have a jCrollPane built with netbeans and I have many jPanels vertically
positionned in it and of course by using the vertical slider attached to the
jScrollPane I can position the view wherever I want.

Now I want by a java method depending of the index number of a particular
jPanel make this object visible within the window ; I know how many jPanels
I have got installed vertically and I can get a int variable in percentage
for this position regarding the vertical height :
int verticalPosition= (int) (index_of_my_Jpanel/number_of_Jpanels)
or maybe I can go with the index_of_my_Jpanel itself by setting for the
vertical slider a min index and a max index.

Now how do I recover information on the vertical slider to set its position
with my selected int variable ?
