FORM SCROLL

Causes scrolling under application program control.

Syntax

FORM SCROLL [ «form»] [action]

Parameters

form

The name of the form to be scrolled. Form must have an established scrolling association. More than one form can be scrolled at a time.

action

Can be

UP, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, PAGEUP, PAGEDOWN, HOME, END, JUMPUP, JUMPDOWN, JUMPLEFT, or JUMPRIGHT

If action is omitted, action is assumed to be implicit in the last user interface event that occurred. If the last event does not correspond to a defined SCROLL key, no scrolling occurs.

Comments

The FORM SCROLL command causes the specified scrolling action to occur under program control. If no form name is specified, the command applies to all forms for which a scrolling association has been established with a FORM SET SCROLL command.

The number of members scrolled depends on the LoadOrder defined for the form. If LoadOrder is row-major, the scrolling is row-based. If LoadOrder is column-major, the scrolling is column-based.
