Lesson 27. Using Lingo on the Web > Creating a Scrolling Text Field

Creating a Scrolling Text Field

The next phase in developing the features for the Get Book List button is to create a text field to display the book list once it is downloaded. Earlier in this lesson (for the status message), you used a text field whose contents you were able to change using Lingo. You will also create a field for the book list, but it will be different from previous text fields you've used.

For the status message, you knew ahead of time how much text would be displayed in the field, which made it easy to decide how big the field should be. In this project, the book list might be only a few lines long one month and several dozen lines the next month. In this task, you will learn how to set up a field cast member with scroll bars so it can hold text of any length.
