Specifies whether a field or group has a horizontal scrollbar.Syntax:

set the hScrollbar of {<field> | <group>} to {true | false}


set the hScrollbar of group "Main" to true

Use the hScrollbar property to show or hide the horizontal scrollbar of a field or group.

When the hScrollbar of a group or field is set to true, the scrollbar appears across the bottom of the group or field.

Changing the hScrollbar does not change the object's rectangle property, so if there are objects near the bottom edge of the group, the scrollbar may cover them.

If a field's dontWrap property is set to true, the field does not scroll horizontally; the scrollbar appears but is always disabled.
