dScrollPanel is closely related to dPanel, and is used for similar things. The one difference, as the name implies, is that it can have a virtual area bigger than its actual area; when that occurs, scroll bars appear to enable the user to see the entire area.

Some of the more useful properties for dScrollPanel:

  • HorizontalScroll - (bool): Controls whether this object will scroll horizontally. Default=True.
  • VerticalScroll - (bool): Controls whether this object will scroll vertically. Default=True.
  • BackColor - (RGB tuple or color name string): The color for this panel. If you do not set this explicitly, its appearance is handled by the underlying UI toolkit, making the panel appear as a native part of the form.
  • ActiveControl - (dObject): Specifies which control in the panel has the keyboard focus.
  • Buffered - (bool): If you are doing a lot of low-level drawing (see DrawObjects), setting this to True usually improves the performance of the drawings and reduces flicker. Default=False.
