    Scroll through text

    Hello, I've been at this for a while now and can't seem to figure this out. I want to have my displayed text scrollable. That is, there is a little box the text is in and when a line of text goes outside that box it should become invisible.

    Now I was able to handle the scrolling with a string and setting the y position each time it needs to scroll, but that doesn't allow me to hide text outside the box. So then I thought about using the list object, but I can't customize how that object looks. It's just the background color and that scrolling bar that I'm stuck with. Finally I tried the text blitter object but it would overlap text if I changed what was to be typed out, so that didn't work either.

    I'm out of idea on how to get this to work, so any help would be appreciated.

    You can store the string elsewhere and only show the amount that fits.

    That's something I'm wanting to try to do, but unfortunately I have no idea how to. That's why I'm here. I don't know how to only show the amount that fits.
