ScrolledWindow and ScrollBar Widgets

Motif provides a widget that allows scrolling. This means that we can place a large view area inside a smaller one an then view portions of the view area.

We have already seen scrollbars in action with Text and List widgets.

As we have seen Motif actually provides convenience function to produce ready made ScrolledText and ScrolledList widgets. These are infact Text (or List) widgets contained inside a ScrolledWindow Widget.
