MikeP..... The code you posted is not possible because you can't give the focus to another control if you are scrolling a scrollbar, it's not a command button, on a scrollbar you keep the mousebutton pressed and move the little scrollbox..... And on the other hand, yoo could only send pagedown and up keys, but cannot control exactly the visible portion of text.
