Technical Tip from "Dr. DeeBee": Adding Scroll Bars on Forms that also include Move-To-When-Pressed Buttons.
When a form is larger than the physical screen of the device Visual CE automatically puts up scroll bars, unless there is a move-to-when-pressed button on the form. However, sometimes you want your form to include both scroll bars and one or more move-to-when-pressed buttons. This capability is newly supported in version 10.0 and this technique shows you how to implement it.
