Set Scrollbar Position Action

   

[Professional Edition Only]

 

The Set Scrollbar Position action allows you to move a scrollbar to a desired position.

 

Any scrollbar which implements the standard Windows scrollbar behaviour can be moved (note that some non-standard scrollbars do not support this functionality.)

 

 

Target Property Page

 

Use the Target Property Page to select the scrollbar to move. If you use the automatic configuration mode, then this will ensure that the control you select supports scrolling.

 

Hint: To select the scrollbar of a window, you will need to control-click on the scrollbar, not the window itself.

 

Tip: If the scroll bar you want to move doesn't support standard scrolling, you may still be able to automate it using the Perform Mouse Click action. Alternatively, ask the software's developer to add support for standard Windows scroll functionality!

Scroll to bottom/right

 

Select this option to scroll a vertical scrollbar to the very bottom, or a horizontal scrollbar to the very right.

 

Scroll to top/left

 

Select this option to scroll a vertical scrollbar to the very top, or a horizontal scrollbar to the very left.

 

Scroll to position

 

Select this option to set the scroll position to an explicit value. Note that different scroll bars can have different value ranges, so it's not recommended that you use this option unless you know a lot about the scroll bar in question. For some scroll bars, certain values may be inaccessible, so the action will set the bar as close as it can.

 

Scroll to percentage

 

Select this option to set the scrollbar to a certain percentage of its available range. 0% is the topmost (or leftmost) position of the bar, and 100% is the bottommost (or rightmost) position.

 

 

Notes

 

This action cannot move a disabled or invisible scroll bar.
