I have a text field which I have populating from a database. The problem I am having is the test field isn't large enough to hold all of the data. I have it set on multiline and wordwrap, and if I make the text field larger it works fine. The problem is that I want to keep the size as it is now. Does anybody know how to add scrollbars or something so that I can get rid of this problem

Well, here we go:  Place under de scrolling-up button the following code:

On (Release)
  Set Variable: "TextField.scroll" = TextField.scroll+"1"
End On

where TextField the name is of your textfield.
scrolling down is the same code with a "-" ofcourse.

Well, good luck, and when you have further questions, feel free to ask.

Bye,

Roy
