Hi,

i ahve an application that outputs alot of text to a pop-up I/O window in Unix. However the pop-up window does not have a scroll bar so I can ony see thet text which is currently in the window. This is very annoying as there is too much text than can be shown in the window.

Does anyone know hot to turn on the scroll bar either with a combination of shortcut key strokes or via a menu!

thanks,
- Troy

If this "pop-up I/O window" is one created and managed by the application it would require a change to the application code to add a scrollbar to the window.

Either start the xterm with:

xterm -sb

or place the mouse pointer over the xterm and bring up the menu with Ctrl - middle mouse button.
