Text field with horizontal scrollbar

P: n/a
Hi!

Thanks for your ideas for the following problem:

The text field has only a vertical scroll bar, but no horizontal one.
When typing across the right boundary of the field the text is continued
in the next line. I'd like a horizontal scrollbar to appear instead.

Is there any other control doing this?

Thanks!

Best regards,
Martin

If it is available on your system and registered, the Microsoft Forms 2.0
TextBox ActiveX Control is the answer to your dilemma. It supports the
use of None, Horizontal, Vertical, or Both as options for the ScroolBars
property of this control. Hope this info helps..

Set the height to 1 row and turn scroll bars off and use the arrow keys.
There is no horizontal bar property to a text field. The only place I
can think of that might have what you need is Stephan Leban's web
site...go to google and type his name to find it.
