When the VScrollBar property is enabled, PowerBuilder adds a vertical scroll bar to the right of a window or other control when the contents of the object are outside the borders.


In a painter

To allow display of a vertical scroll bar:

  • Select the VScrollBar check box on the General or Scroll tab page of the object's Properties view.

In scripts

The VScrollBar property is a boolean value.

This example displays a vertical scroll bar in a DataWindow control:

dw_1.VScrollBar = TRUE

This property cannot be set at runtime for EditMask controls.
