An updated snippet on something I've probably made countless times. I've seen a few questions about scroll bars over the recent months and have had a personal request for it.

Load a text file into a scrollable window frame. You can use the mouse wheel to scroll or drag the scroll bar. Press 'b' to toggle a line number border (much like the one in the DBP editor).

This will not account for lines of text that go beyond the width of the window. That's a more advanced topic beyond the scope of this demo. If anyone needs an example of that I can post something for that as well.

This doesn't seem to work. I think I know why but I don't have the time to look into it at the mo, so just thought I'd let you know.

It's working perfectly fine for me. Can you be more specific?

I got it working eventually by making a project folder to put the test.txt file in. For some reason CodeSurge doesn't like the DBP temp folder very much. Well for me anyway

Also, Phaelax, don't know if I told you yet, you solved the problem with scrolling manually with less nothing to scroll, but your solution didn't account for your mousewheel commands. Don't know if you fixed it yet, but I removed mousewheel control anyway because I have two lists to scroll through

You could leave mousewheel scrolling in, and simply differentiate which list gets scrolled by determining which list the mouse is hovering over.

Quite a cool solution for a list box also; could through in some icons on the left if one wanted.
