FLscroll — A FLTK opcode that adds scroll bars to an area.


FLscroll adds scroll bars to an area.


FLscroll iwidth, iheight [, ix] [, iy]


iwidth -- width of widget.

iheight -- height of widget.

ix (optional) -- horizontal position of upper left corner of the valuator, relative to the upper left corner of corresponding window (expressed in pixels).

iy (optional) -- vertical position of upper left corner of the valuator, relative to the upper left corner of corresponding window (expressed in pixels).


Containers are useful to format the graphic appearance of the widgets. The most important container is FLpanel, that actually creates a window. It can be filled with other containers and/or valuators or other kinds of widgets.

There are no k-rate arguments in containers.

FLscroll adds scroll bars to an area. Normally you must set arguments iwidth and iheight equal to that of the parent window or other parent container. ix and iy are optional since they normally are set to zero. For example the following code:

         FLpanel    "PanelPluto",400,300,100,100
         FLscroll   400,300
gk1, ih1 FLslider   "FLslider 1", 500, 1000, 2 ,1, -1, 300,15, 20,50
gk2, ih2 FLslider   "FLslider 2", 300, 5000, 2 ,3, -1, 300,15, 20,100
gk3, ih3 FLslider   "FLslider 3", 350, 1000, 2 ,5, -1, 300,15, 20,150
gk4, ih4 FLslider   "FLslider 4", 250, 5000, 1 ,11,-1, 300,30, 20,200

will show scroll bars, when the main window size is reduced:




Here is an example of the FLscroll opcode. It uses the file FLscroll.csd.
