[fxruby-users] TEXT_AUTOSCROLL option in FXText does not work?

Here is the code I use to implement auto scroll:

              text = text_widget.output.text
              vis_position = text.length - 1
              (text.length - 2).downto(0) do |index|
                if text[index..index] == "\n"
                  vis_position = index + 1

You are correct. Jeroen has recently indicated that TEXT_AUTOSCROLL is
not actually implemented; see:


I will probably remove that option from the documentation for FXText
until it's actually working.

Hope this helps,
