    Here is a tut on creating scrolling text, if add the code in the onclick event to a timer you should get the automatic scrolling effect you want.

    tut :
    something like this:

    var ScrollDown = function()
    // This will scroll the text down 1 line

    var intervalID = setInterval(ScrollDown, 500);

    i don't know the template and not about to go buy it, but just check if the item is a textbox, click on it and check the properties box. if it is you can resize it however and if the scrollbar was developed correctly is should pick up the new size.
