You are talking of a "log-area" style. I keep meaning to make one of these... It really just needs a function to add the new text and modify para/scroll. See this: view layout [a: area 40x40 btn [probe a/para/scroll]] Anton.

Anton, That's it. You got the feeling: a "log area" where each new added line would move entire area content up whenever more space to new lines would be needed. This log area also may have a scroll bar so one can traverse it from bottom to top and vice versa after the process of adding new line is done Carlos On Fri, 6 Aug 2004 01:08:19 +1000 Anton Rolls <[antonr--lexicon--net]> wrote:
