    Title:  "Scrolling LIST Example"
    File:   %list-scroll-demo.r
    Author: "Gregg Irwin"
    Date:   23-sep-2003
    Purpose: {
        Shows an example of how to use a LIST style face with
        an associated scroller.

main-lst: sld: none ; The list and slider faces
c-1: none          ; A face we use for some sizing calculations
count: 0        ; The index of the current item being fetched for display.
ml-cnt: 0       ; Used to track the result list slider value.
visible-rows: 0  ; How many result items are visible at one time.

; Generate some random data to put in the list

    ; The first block for a LIST specifies the sub-layout of a "row",
    ; which can be any valid layout, not just a simple "line" of data.
    ; The SUPPLY block for a list is the code that gets called to display
    ; data, in this case as the list is scrolled. Here COUNT tells us
    ; which ~visible~ row data is being requested for. We add that to the
    ; offset (ML-CNT) set as the slider is moved. INDEX tells us which
    ; ~face~ in the sub-layout the data is going to.

; We don't need to set the page size here if we've set a good value

; will be off as well. i.e. You need to do one or the other.
