Nice demo Steve. Forms are a difficult topic and I understand the  
advantages with scrolling versus some other methods such as  
databrowsers or, as you mentioned, tabbed panes. My experience  
(several years ago) with scrolling edit fields has been negative  
since they tend to flash (translates into unprofessional in the mind  
of the user using the form)  during the move when the user grabs the  
scroll bar and moves it from bottom to top (or vice-versa). Maybe  
someone will tackle the scrollView possibility mentioned by Bernie.

The topic of mouse wheel support was raised back in 2004 on the beta  
list and Robert P donated a handler. I thought this was rolled into  
the appearance runtime (or was planned). Can anyone confirm this is  
automatic for FB created windows (i.e. appearance window....)? Seeing  
your mouse wheel code would help too Steve (thank you for the offer).
