I was not able to figure out how to make scroll work in a non editable field.
You can do with a WebViewer. Check this CustomFunction:
FileMaker Custom Function:WV_text ( txt ; bgnd_color ; font_color ; fontsize )
neither are we. Vote here:
Scroll bar for text when not editable
Can't do it - but you can use a pop up with a larger field that is resizeable to show the full text.
The only other alternative is to load the text into a global field for viewing, allow for editing so that it can be scrolled, but disallow any editing update ( put a message up informing the user that edits will be ignored).
webviewer will do that you want as Benamin said and also you could use a calculation field
The only way ive ever gotten this to work is to drop an empty (no url and no actions allowed) web viewer in front of the text field that covers everything except the scroll bar.
Make sure everything is sized right and stretch controls are set right and it can work.
Ps i hate layered controls for uses like this...
Thank you Benjamin.
I did it using the WebViewer.
Thank you all for your help.
