Build 336

Forms can now be scrollable. This should make it easier for you to create forms that require a lot of input. To enable scroll bars for a form merely set the ScrollBars property to 3.

Guineu differs in a few details from Microsoft Visual FoxPro. Unlike in VFP the property is read-/writable at runtime. So you can turn on and off scrollbars as needed. However, you can only turn on horizontal and vertical scrollbars together. The scrollbars only appear when there's something to scroll to, though. Similar to VFP the rightmost and bottommost controls define the extension of the scrollable area.

Parameters passed to CREATEOBJECT() and NEWOBJECT() are forwarded to the Init event. STR() does now support all three parameters. A few issued with SECONDS() and SYS(2) have been fixed.
