I'm using a multiline textbox. I want to scroll large text in it by pressing hardware keys and not by moving scrollbar :sign0085:

Not absolutely so. It scroll the caret, not the text. And yes, when the caret is in bottom of the TextBox, text will scroll. But if i need to scroll text up, i'll have to move caret from the bottom to the top. And the caret's blinking is so annoying:) But i want to make something like...err...text reader, where the text will scroll line-by-line by pressing HardwareKey. I use TextBox instead of something different because i need to copy\paste text.

Using the new SendMessageToControl method of the updated Hardware library you can send scroll messages to the textbox.
First download it here: http://www.basic4ppc.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2154

I've used 4 buttons: PageUp, PageDown, LineUp, LineDown
You could use a HardKey object to catch the hardware buttons and then send the scroll message.

Erel, this is exactly what i need! Thank you! And it's a nice joke with text to scroll in demo :):)
And another question - where can i find the description of all system messages ?
