GUI with vertical scrollbar

Recommended Posts


Hey there folks!

I've been looking through the scrollbar functions, there are many and seem endless.

I need to implement a vertical scrollbar for my GUI - its content will increase downwards over time and I need a scrollbar to be able to check it all.

So far I've used the functions _GUIScrollBars_Init and _GUIScrollBars_ShowScrollBar. This created and made visible my vertical scrollbar, but it does nothing.

How do I proceed to make it a working scrollbar?

The example in helpfile for _GUIScrollBars_Init show what's to do.

You mean the 220 lines of code "simple" example? This isn't the answer I'm looking for.

It takes a lot of time to read all those lines and correctly interpret them.

Whereas if you have the knowledge on how to proceed to make it a working scrollbar, you save me time (and this becomes a visible and simpler solution for everyone to check).

Look at my Scrollbars UDF (the link is in my sig) - fully working scrollbars with a single line of code.


Any of my own code posted anywhere on the forum is available for use by others without any restriction of any kind._______My UDFs:


ArrayMultiColSort ---- Sort arrays on multiple columns
ChooseFileFolder ---- Single and multiple selections from specified path treeview listing
Date_Time_Convert -- Easily convert date/time formats, including the language used
ExtMsgBox --------- A highly customisable replacement for MsgBox
GUIExtender -------- Extend and retract multiple sections within a GUI
GUIFrame ---------- Subdivide GUIs into many adjustable frames
GUIListViewEx ------- Insert, delete, move, drag, sort, edit and colour ListView items
GUITreeViewEx ------ Check/clear parent and child checkboxes in a TreeView
Marquee ----------- Scrolling tickertape GUIs
NoFocusLines ------- Remove the dotted focus lines from buttons, sliders, radios and checkboxes
Notify ------------- Small notifications on the edge of the display
Scrollbars ----------Automatically sized scrollbars with a single command
StringSize ---------- Automatically size controls to fit text
Toast -------------- Small GUIs which pop out of the notification area
