How do you make editbox in multiline mode show a scroll bar if there is more line than height?

If there isn't, is this not a lack of features by AppGameKit group?

Any comment appriciated!

This is not supported by default.
You can simulate it using SetEditBoxScissor() to crop the viewable area but you have to make the scrollbar yourself

There is not a function for total height, it is unable to set full height like normal text.
There is then no way to determine edit box content height to make a scroll bar.

I guess we have to switch engine and pay more for production cost.

You can just make it an arbitrary height and use seteditboxscissor() to clip the text
