if you have MX there is a text-scrolling component that is already built

and here's a tutorial that will help you build your own..

When you create your text field, left click and drag to get the field the size you would like it.  If it has a circle in the bottom right corner of the box, it will keep expanding.  You want a square to appear there, once you have the field the size you would like it.
