I’m writing to a text DAT to log instant messages. Problem is that once the log becomes longer than the viewport, writing new messages scrolls the text DAT all the way to the top. I want it to continue scrolling down like the table DAT or traditional instant messengers. There doesn’t seem to be any way to change this function, but I can’t find any other simple operators to use.
The text TOP and field COMP have proven to be a real pain when working with long strings. I’m considering the List COMP as a possibility, but there is so much to learn just to get it up and running, and I wanted to do something just quick and dirty to be able to implement this within the next week.
Any ideas for elegant solutions?
